That was a close call! Fortunately, this only turned out to be a phishing simulation from OutKept.

Act now and hurry? Check before you worry!

Consider these checks:

  • Are you given very little time? Threatened by a short deadline?
  • How credible is the email? Seek a second opinion.
  • Did you expect this? When in doubt, ask the sender for more details.
  • Does it contain personal information that is not easily obtainable? Or is it very vague?
  • If an offer seems unbelievably advantageous, it’s often not to be trusted. Be skeptical of unexpected rewards, bonuses, or government assistance.
