What To Do?
1. Inform IT so that we can warn others who may have received the same email. Also, let us know if you clicked any links or opened any attachments so we can make sure your PC/account is not compromised.
2. Right-click the email message, and then click Junk > Block Sender.
Checking Domain/URL (Website Address)
Domain name is the part after the @ in an email address or the part after the last dot(.) in the web address before .com, .org, .net, .biz etc.
However, scammers do sometime use legitimate websites (e.x. sharepoint.com) to trick you. It's up to you to find out if you're expecting this email and if the sender and their email is who they say they are.
Examples (domain highlighted in bold)
http://www.receive.invoices-sharepoint.com/customer-invoice-1231.html/ (NOTE: See how you can be tricked into visiting "sharepoint" by a misleading URL that actually leads you to "invoices-sharepoint.com" domain)
http://www.portal.microsoft-onlinefax.net/received-fax.php/ (NOTE: See how you can be tricked into visiting "Microsoft" by a misleading URL that actually leads you to "microsoft-onlinefax.net" domain)
Secure Websites (Https)
Secure websites use https rather than http protocol, especially for pages where personal information is given (Login page, e-shopping payment page, filling out personal identification form etc). Here is how to identify secure https websites in your browser. Websites using https tend to be more safer.
