Here are our 6 best tips on how to protect yourself from fraudsters:
- Do not open attachments or links if you are unsure of what applies.
- Hover over the link itself to see where it actually sends you. You often see this in the bottom left corner of the browser or Outlook if you are on a PC.
- Go to the homepage of the supplier (for example the insurance company) by entering the address in the browser instead of clicking on the link. You should only log in or enter information on official pages.
- Do a Google search on the title of the email you suspect may be a scam.
- Ask friends and acquaintances if they have seen similar emails.
- Be extra critical in periods where special matters may be particularly relevant. For example, when the tax notice arrives, in connection with war or other serious events, as well as before holidays.
