Some Basic Rules:
- If the e-mail has an attachment and you did not expect to receive the e-mail, either delete the e-mail or call the sender to make sure they sent the message.
- If you get a message from your bank, ISP, the IRS or anyone else asking you to click a link to update information, DON'T do it. Either call to confirm or go to the web site on your own and see of there is a something on the web page. By the way, the IRS only communicates by snail mail.
- If you get an e-mail with an attachment, download the attachment and scan with your anti-virus.
These are mostly common sense procedures. If your bank called and said hey we need to update the information, by the way, what's your SS#, you wouldn't give it so don't do it by computer....
No two moments are alike and a person who thinks that any two moments are alike has never lived.
