Protect Yourself against Phishing and Other Suspicious Emails
Spam is an unavoidable aspect of the internet. Spam or ‘phishing’ emails will often use familiar logos and sender email addresses to look like they have been sent from a legitimate source. If you think you have received a suspicious email, do not open attachments or use any of the links — just delete it.
There are many ways for spammers to infiltrate your email and contacts. To minimize risk, create an alternative email address and use it only for signing up to websites and services.
The CKC does not send emails to its members requesting personal details – i.e., membership number, password, banking information. If you receive a suspicious email, contact your email service provider to verify its legitimacy and the best course of action.
