Here is a rule of thumb: When in doubt, DO NOT click an attachment or link. Always be careful when you are sent a link, an attachment, or anything else via e-mail, text, or Facebook message. Here are five pieces of wisdom for today:
Number 1: Postal/Delivery Services do not send attachments.
Number 2: Banks and Credit Card companies do not send attachments.
Number 3: Microsoft, Google, PayPal, and E-Bay do not call you and ask to log into your computer.
Number 4: If you do click on one of these items, call a professional to protect your data and your personal information
Number 5: Be careful that when you search on a search engine, the link really leads you to where you want to go. Hover over it and see if the link makes sense.
