Do your clients know how to spot a scam email?

Posted by Akankasha Dewan on Aug 2, 2019 11:16:43 AM

A plain-text email purporting to be from Dropbox asking you to upgrade your account. A super legitimate-looking email supposedly from Netflix directing you to sign in to unlock new benefits. A notification apparently from EnergyAustralia with your latest bill attached.

Do your clients know how to spot which of these emails are real and which of these are fake?

It can undoubtedly get tricky – cybercriminals are, in fact, coming up with new, innovative ways every day to deceive you into thinking a hoax email is a real one. Their techniques range from using high quality graphical elements to ironically using safety features (such as safety questions) to trick you into clicking on malicious links.

To help educate your clients on how to spot a fake email scam from a real one, we’ve created an interactive quiz. This contains real-life examples of email scams we’ve intercepted in the past, along with genuine emails that our commonly found in Australian inboxes.

 Share this quiz today with your clients to test their knowledge!


To make it easy for you to share the quiz with your customers and prospects, we've put together a Conversation Catalyst document with email copy to help get the conversation started.
