Dodgy emails

I’ve received a few emails pretending to be Apple and Google. Other clients have received them as well. They look very authentic and may say something like you need to verify otherwise your account will be disabled.

To check, don’t click on the link. See who it’s from, that’s a simple give away or move you mouse over the link but don’t click. That will tell you the link.

Usually I manually go to the website

e.g.. http://appleid.apple.com

or

http://www.gmail.com

Depending on the email and you can confirm there is probably nothing wrong.

Also be careful of Domain renewals. A company sends a snail mail with a very expensive charge for the domain renewal. Be careful of those as well.
