The internet is a fantastic tool for connection, information, and entertainment. But just like any bustling marketplace, it can also attract those looking to make a dishonest buck. Fear not, fellow web wanderer! With a few savvy strategies, you can navigate the online world with confidence and protect yourself from scams.

Scammers can use personal information gleaned from social media to target you. Be mindful of what you share online, especially your birthday, address, and phone number. - Martha Wilson, Met Police

Phishing emails and messages are a classic scammer trick. They often try to mimic legitimate sources like banks, credit card companies, or even social media platforms. Here's how to spot a phish:

  1. Check the sender's address: Does the email address look slightly off? Legitimate companies won't use strange spellings or free email providers.
  2. Beware of urgency: Scammers love to pressure you into acting fast. Don't click on links or attachments in emails demanding immediate action.
  3. Grammatical gremlins: Phishing attempts are often riddled with typos and grammatical errors. A legitimate company email will be polished and professional.
