(Phishing) Examples

Phishing Examples

Sometimes phishing emails are obviously malicious, but other times they are pretty convincing. It is important to keep in mind the context of the email. If you did not request to be "added to a project" or if your mail quota is suddently "exceeding capacity", you will want to tread carefully in the email.

Below you will find a collection of phishing emails that have been reported to us and we have shown basic ways to tell if these emails are legitimate or not without even clicking on the link.
