How do I identify a phishing email?

Phishing emails are not all the same but they may contain some of the following, but if you still aren't sure you could email the organisation or person the email is supposed to be from to confirm if they sent it:

  • They may contain poor spelling or grammar
  • They may ask for personal information
  • They may ask you to click on a link
  • They may contain a sense of urgency for you to act immediately 
  • They may contain generic greetings
