This one almost got me the other day. I got an email from the US Postal Service.


I immediately started to wonder about when the last time I went to the Post Office. Then I realized, I don’t use this email address for this kind of stuff. Come to think of it, the Post Office doesn’t have any of my email addresses. For futher investigation, I clicked on the “from” part and it displayed a gmail address. Tricky, tricky, tricky! I’m not opening that attachment.

So, be careful people. These tactics are getting more and more creative. Don’t open attachments from people you don’t know… ever.

Here’s where you say, “Now I know.” Then I say, “And knowing is half the battle!”
