Phishy Emails

I hate spam emails. How about you? I regularly get them in my yahoomail. We should be cautious and aware of phishy emails playing to be from a legitimate trader,vendor, bank, organization, or government agency. These emails usually ask you to validate or confirm your personal information. More often than not, they use common statements such as, your account will be closed, there is an order for something has been placed in your name, your information has been nowhere to be found due to technical problems and verify your identity by submitting your SSN, they would say that they are the fraud department ask to verify your information because they suspect you may be a victim of identity theft, a state lottery commission and requested your bank information to deposit their prize money into your account. Be aware of this trick and phishy email.
