Examples of where scammers can reach you include direct messages to your social media accounts, emails, SMS or replying to you publicly on social media. To avoid phishing, there are a couple of measures you can take to protect your exchange accounts. Check the source of the address of a message or email. Phishing email addresses usually look suspicious, however, they can also seem like an official source. In these instances, look at the content of the email or message. Common features of phishing messages include lucrative offers, a sense of urgency/limited time offers, links and attachments. Do not click any links, scan QR codes or fill out forms before you make sure that the email or message is coming from an official source.
