Phishing Emails

  1. Check the domain name from the sender's email address. Look at these two email addresses both claiming to from Amazon customer services: customer-service@amazon.co.uk or customer-service@amazon- help.co.uk. If we look at the latter we can see that the domain name isn’t correct. FYI the domain is the text after the “@” symbol.
  2. If you think it doesn’t look right don’t click anything forward it towards report@phishing.gov.uk. (UK)
  3. Click the Junk button or if you can’t find that just delete it.
