Phishing, Spam, and You

Phishing and Spam

Spam messages are a common occurance with any email account. Most Spam is an annoying add for something you don't want and never asked for, but some spam can have an ulterior motive, trying to convince us to turn over passwords or financial information. These messages can look legitimate and it's easy to fall for these "phishing" scams.
