The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a rash of new scams. They’re often designed to prey on the most vulnerable, as well. Scammers are trying to steal personal information, sell useless products and more.
Fake email, or spoofed email, is email sent by unknown, often malicious, third parties that is disguised so it appears to come from a trusted source.
To use the internet for its benefits and avoid its disadvantages, you need to understand how to protect yourself. Criminals can reach into your private life through your computer, but you don’t have to give them the chance.
Phishing and email spoofing remain two of the most popular methods used by hackers and spammers to steal your personal information. A few simple steps can drastically reduce the chances of you falling victim to these increasingly sophisticated scams.
