One of our techs wanted to share a recently received email:
It has all the ear marks of a hacker. They love using scare tactics and hope that you will see the line across the top that says “This message is from a trusted sender.” and won’t think before clicking.
Let’s take a closer look.
1: Gmail is never going to say “Someone Has Your Password”
2: The sent address isn’t a Gmail account! If you click on the carrot next to it you will see this:
3: There are grammar and spelling errors, all point to a hacker.
What does a real Gmail alert look like?
The email address is a gmail account, there is no threat in the email, just a notification that a new device has accessed your account.
