How to Spot a Scam Email Link

WorriedMost people are good people and are very trusting. They wouldn’t dream of harming someone else on purpose and stealing from them – especially over the holidays, is the lowest of low.

However, every major holiday brings a massive push by the scumbags of the world to do just that – steal your money, your identity and your peace of mind.

This is a very easy, simple trick that you need to know about if you don’t already. Even if you get an email that looks like it came from a friend, DO THIS. Hold your mouse over the link to see what the REAL link actually is. It will pop up in a little comment window as your mouse is held over the link listed. EVEN IF the URL looks legitimate, that is only text. The actual link will be embedded inside that text.

(You might need to turn your sound down a little bit. The recording is louder than I intended it to be.)
