Fraudulent Email Sample

Phishing is a technique used by criminals in which they send you an email message and ask you to respond to the email or click on a link within the message. Clicking the link could take you to a website which is infected with malware. When in doubt, contact the sender of the email in question directly and not via replying to the email.
