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.

    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

    Google snippets of the email text to see if the same format has been used in the past. eg “Army officer from Syria but now living with the United Nations on asylum”
