The Phish Commish Says: Watch Your “To” and “From” Fields

You can tell a lot about a message by considering the source. This is especially true of emails. The “FROM” field can easily be faked, so do a quick test to see who really sent the message: Start a reply to the email and look at the address that populates the “TO” section. Is it the same as the original sender? It’s a major red flag if the original sender’s address is not the same as the “REPLY TO” address.

You’ll find other “TO” and “FROM” red flags below. Take a good look - our February phish training will be employing some of these tells!
