How to check if you received a scam email

  1. Google the details.

    Do a Google search for the persons name/company name that the email has come from.

  3. Confirm using the information you have found

    Using the details you have researched, call or email the business and ask them to verify the information within the email.

  4. Check if the email has been sent to multiple people
