Well, Last Week I Fell Victim To That Very Thing

I Knew Exactly What Had Happened
Clearing the clutter from your email inbox is also a really good way to ensure you don’t click on dodgy links. If it’s not in your inbox you won’t be subjected to them.
Find out how to go from:
Total overwhelm because you can’t find the important stuff amongst your emails,
Fear of opening your emails because of the sheer volume and;
Out of control as you don’t know how to deal with it
In control as I teach you how to start the process, step-by-step;
Thinking rationally about the FOMO of how these people get you to sign up in the first place and;
Calm as you take back control of your inbox.
A Final Word
I would always encourage you to report a phishing email in any case. A ‘Phishing’ email is where someone is trying to scam you by making you believe it’s an email from your bank, building society or other financial institution, such as the Football Pools, National Lottery or Premium Bonds. The initial email may appear to be quite helpful but if you engage in it, the sender will eventually have the intention of trying to scam money from you.
Most of these emails will be a dead giveaway as these scammers target thousands, even millions of email addresses every day and most of them won’t relate to you. For instance, you receive an email purporting to be from Barclays but you only bank with Lloyds. However, there may be a time when you do receive an email from Lloyds Bank and the email subject line panics you to doing something now and that’s what they want from you.
