How to spot an email scam!


Having spent the weekend reloading my parents' spam-infested PC, I thought that it might be a good time to link to a useful article on how to spot potential email scams. As an internet security professional (of sorts), I see the fallout from these sorts of phishing scams every day, and I hate it when I see some poor bastard getting his checking account cleared out by a hacker.

I'm not saying that my folks actually fell prey to any of these but... (ahem!)

Read it. Learn it. Live it. If you follow these 10 simple rules, you'll be fine.

Hope this helps someone!
