It’s important to be aware of how easily spam emails can catch us off guard due to our heavy reliance on email communications. These emails will insistently prompt you to click on a link and input your personal and financial information on a counterfeit website designed to mimic a genuine one.
Some fraudulent emails may contain a link or attachment that, when clicked, downloads malicious software (malware) onto your computer or device. Certain types of malware can track your online activities, enabling them to record and transmit your financial, personal, or security information to the scammers. However, evading such risks is quite straightforward if you take a step back and think before you click about the attachments or links in your emails.
