[QUOTE=DrageMester;2754048]I call bogus on Intel’s online quiz. It’s not an attempt to determine if people are good at spotting fishing attempts, but rather a marketing tool to convince people that they are not good at it and must rely on McAfee (owned by Intel) to protect themselves.
For some example emails only a small fraction of the email is shown, and if you can’t see the sender or the receiver or see links in the email, then it’s not possible to determine if something is phishing or not.
The only way to get all questions right is to be a good guesser.
It’s one of two reasons you cannot determine (except by guessing) if those emails are phishing.
And that’s the other reason why it’s not possible to determine whether some of those emails are phishing or not.[/QUOTE]
Oh good comments, I thought it was just me, although I got one wrong that was real an I was caught by the American airlines one because I have never used them before and the only clue was the extra aa in the web address. I have never been caught by any fake emails, even if they look doubtful I just bin them. If I don’t know what it is, it goes bye bye.
What’s annoying is the “cover” names companies use. I may buy something unknowingly from a subsidiary of a larger company and the confirmation e mail comes from the main business. That’s confusing. I must have dumped a few of those.
one of he main things is to never open attachments.
Be careful Guys, It’s getting worse and the spoofers more clever every day.
