Email Spam messages

A few weeks ago my girl friend got a message from Sprint asking her to change some information she had on her account.

What drew a red flag on this message was the fact that sprint was spelled with an ! at the end.

What I also noticed was that the email message link was directed to another website.

You can do this easily by hovering your mouse pointer on the link and at the bottom left you will see where that link is pointing to.

If you read my past emails. Anytime you get an email like this and you suspect something always close out of that email and open a new window and type in the direct url to log in if changes need to be made.

Chances are that specific company will have an alert on their account for any changes you need to make on your end.

Email safe and don't click those links if you suspect differently.
