What are Email Scams

Email scams are messages (when you receive them) that attempt to impersonate legitimate senders.  These messages often ask you to click on a link and provide personal data.  In some cases, the sender may also attempt to install malware on your computer. (malware - software program that includes viruses, worms, Trojan horses and spyware).

How to avoid getting into trouble ...
(1) Have a up-to-date anti-virus program installed in your computer.
(2) Delete all emails from senders you do not know.
(3) Download any picture and/or clicking on any link with caution.

enjoy surfing ...
