Don't be Conned or Pfished!

This morning...as with most morning...my email was full of notes from businesses and junk. And, usually I delete all of it. While doing so, I thought I'd share a simple little "trick" with you. You may already do/know this...but perhaps not.
 
We are our own 1st Line of Defense against con-artists that pfish the internet trolling for folks to give out there personal information.
 
Here is a screen print of part of my email list this morning.
 
 
I have "hovered" my curser over the note from fullbeauty.com about their Big Red Tag Sale. When hovering...their full email address will show on the screen. No clicking...just HOVER.

Now, Looks what happens with another Email I also received...


This time, while hovering over what is "supposed to be" PayPal...it is NOT actually a paypal email address but someone from "Maldonaados.com". THIS IS NOT a true email...but someone fishing for information. I did not open it...and I know that I SHOULD NOT open it..because I have checked the TRUE email against what the email name is showing on my mail list.

Do this...and save yourselves some headaches!
