Protect Yourself from Phishing Be suspicious of any unsolicited e-mail. Never provide sensitive information to their query. Check it out from second source (Telephone, etc.) Don’t use the phone number provided in the e-mail. Misspellings, bad grammar, etc., should be clues. Look out for link names that don’t match actual link addresses. Remember: Your bank will not ask you to verify that your account information is still accurate. If it does, you need to find a new bank!
