Emails have some information about who sent them, and how, they are called ‘headers’. If you get an email from apple.applewins.com – it didn’t come from Apple. Paypalcustomerservice.com is not PayPal. Take a second to look at the headers when you get a suspicious email, if they don’t cleary say the company name, don’t open it. Domains are easy to buy and throw up a website to capture user names and passwords from unsuspecting people.
