Recently before a day ago, I received two emails from scammers. How I know that both emails are from scammer because one email is pointing that there is someone who tried to log in to my account with my Gmail.
Also, it’s pointing me out that someone tried to get my Facebook information with a device and I have to take immediate action to change my password and other securities.
What do you do if you woke up in the morning and just checking the routine mails but you got these emails? Do you reply or click on the action button? Most of you do the same they rush to secure their accounts and changing their credentials, but you know what happens after you marked your self-secure via that Email. Let me explain it to you;
You are safe till when you saw the scammer email and just delete, report, or ignored it, whether you clicked on the link just for checking or securing your account then at that time you put yourself in danger because you don’t know but the pieces of information like your Email, password and other credentials will be delivered to the scammers while are securing yourself.
What to do when you received a scammer mail?
Nothing to worry about if you received and scammer email, because you are in safe hands when you don’t click on any link or download any file which is attached with that mail. Modern Email providers i-e In Gmail mostly these files moved to the Spam folder and in Hotmail in junk because of the sender email address, you can figure it out just reading that who is sent that mail to you.
Although you can report those as Phishing Emails via your provider Email portal, in Gmail it will be given on some Email on top beside Report, not spam, and if not then click on the right corner 3 dots on email and report it.
I figured it out from a mail that warned me to secure my Facebook account that if I clicked on that link where the information goes.
You can see in the above picture there are just Gmail addresses that are waiting for my action and grab my credentials.
Also, some scammers send you that they want to transfer money to you via a legal bank and shared the money with you or they just email you from your own mail that they have your private video if you do not give them money they will share it on social media and with friends although its spooling email that you see the same address of your mail address; like to and from same email email@example.com.
Just don’t be panic when you received such emails and you are in safe hands until you didn’t give flow the information from your own mouse clicked or key down. 🙂
