One of the best ways to avoid fraud is to become an educated consumer. Please utilize the information on this and other sites to protect yourself.
E-mail can be used for sending scams such as a false offer from a company or an alert about a false computer virus. These e-mails are often forwarded with good intention by friends, adding an erroneous level of legitimacy. If you receive an e-mail that you think could be a scam, do not forward it and delete it immediately. If you receive an e-mail warning that a new computer virus is circulating, check the website of any one of the well-known anti-virus software companies for validation.
Emails such as these are most likely from criminals who send thousands of emails at a time to random addresses. These criminals are trying to entice the recipient to visit a phony website and provide personal and confidential information, such as online IDs and pass codes, or Social Security numbers and account numbers. Although the site may look like a bank's, it is not—which is why this practice is known as "spoofing."
