Do not trust unexpected email messages

Email messages can be fake and senders can be impersonated. Think twice before acting solely on

email requests. Do not click on any link in unexpected email messages that ask you to log on to

services such as online e-banking / payments, email, social networks, etc. Instead, use your own

bookmarked links to access those sites. If the message is genuine, you should see the same request

after using your own bookmarks to log on to those services.

Similarly, do not open any attachment in email messages that you are not expecting.
