How To Tell If Email is SPAM
Written by Mergen

Earlier today, I received an email SPAM asking for my CV.  Well, this was a first.

Typically, email spams ask for credit card or bank information of some sorts.  The email pretended to be from Holiday Inn and had even included the photos of the Holiday Inn Executives.

In short, if you receive an email and you are not sure what do & whether the email/message is SPAM, you can follow the below steps:

  1. Do NOT click on any links within the email or Yahoo Messenger message window
  2. Review the URL/address of the link. If it is not something you can recognize, delete the email. If the link is something like This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and not This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , again delete the email.
  3. If the email is not something that is critically important that you respond, delete the email. If you feel the email is possibly important and still are not sure if it is a SPAM, review some of the guides below.

Here are some of the top ways to spot email SPAM.

Hope this was helpful.  Wish you a safe & secure email inbox!!
