Quick Money Facts: How to recognize a phishing email

It’s easy to think that you won’t be fooled by phishing emails, those scams that try to coax you into revealing your personal financial information so you can be robbed. But smart people do fall prey to these email scams. A few tips: Don’t click on attachments in emails you didn’t expect. Be especially paranoid about any email claiming to be from your credit-card company or bank. Those places already have your financial information, so why would they demand that you provide it again? Call your bank or credit-card company directly — through the number on your card, not a number provided by an email — if you have questions.
