Important! How to Check Links in Emails Correctly

How to check links in emails correctlyYou already know that it can be dangerous to click links in emails.

So you probably read a link before clicking, to make sure that it’s from a legitimate domain name.

For example, ‘paypal.com’ is legitimate but ‘paypa1.com’ is a scammer!

But now scammers have found a way to fake the domain!

They can register a unicode domain name that looks like this:

xn--e1awd7f.com

And when you view it in your browser it looks like this!

https://epic.com

This is how to protect yourself…

Before clicking on a link in an email, copy it into Notepad or Textedit to see what it really looks like.
