Avoid Getting "Phished"

"Phishing" is a way for scammers to get your private information like passwords and credit card info and possibly to steal your identity.

Phishing emails usually come from an authentic-looking email that instructs you either respond/reply to the email, click on a malicious link, contact the phone number of the "institution" listed in the email, or open a malicious attachment.

If you receive a phishing email, delete it!
