  • Inspect all electronic communications you receive to confirm the message was generated from a legitimate source. 
  • Look for telltale signs of phishing – poor spelling or grammar, the use of threats, the URL does not match that of the legitimate website. If the message does not feel right, chances are it is not. 
  • DON’T click on links embedded in an unsolicited message from an unverified source.
