Sometimes, you go to your email account and see something like; “Alert from F-acebook” or “Warning from I-nstagram”, etc.
If you are not paying attention you might be tricked into thinking that F-acebook is Facebook or I-nstagram is Instagram.
This is IF you use that email account on Facebook or Instagram.
Of course, if you are James Kirk with an account of firstname.lastname@example.org and have joined Facebook as Captain, using JamKik@crapmail.com, then clearly, receiving any ‘alert’ from a site this account did NOT join is phishing.
See how easy it is to protect yourself?
