Being aware of online scams is the best way to avoid them.
How emails are titled plays a significant role in the success of a phishing scam campaign. Scammers try to fool recipients into clicking a malicious link.
websense.com has released a list of the top five email subject lines that criminals use in phishing scams:
1. Invitation to connect on LinkedIn
2. Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender
3. Dear <<Business Name>> Customer
4. Comunicazione importante
5. Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender
Make sure you're aware of what to look for in phishing and other sorts of scams. Pay attention to strange spellings, word usage, and something that doesn't feel right.
