CYBER TIPS – You Know Me? – 2

The assumption many people make, to their detriment, is to assume that a message sent to their email comes from someone who knows them, or from a reliable source.

After all, one thinks,  ‘How would they get my email address?’

Anyone can get your email address.   There are sites which find email addresses;  do a search,  you can find them.

The difference is, in some cases, is  that email addresses sold by Facebook or a Site will have a bit more information about you than an average search and make you believe that the writer is legitimate.

Many scammers do a search of your name, find out what schools you attended, where you work, what sites you belong to, etc.

Be very careful.
