Do you know when emails are legitimate and when they are phishing scams?
Check out these examples of fake Google and Verizon emails so you don’t fall for them.
Emails from Google Drive
This email will come from someone you know saying that there is a document waiting for you to view in Google Drive. When you click the link which is long and unintelligible, it will bring you to a site that looks like a Google login page. It asks for your email credentials which can be from any email host. If entered, the hacker now has your login credentials.
Emails from Verizon Fios
This scam will tell you that Verizon could not verify your current information and they need you to update it. This is to lure customers to a fraudulent website to input personal information and/or download virus infected programs. Delete immediately and do not click anything. Verizon will never ask for personal or account information by email.
