Be Aware Of A New Gmail Scam
There's a new Gmail scam to be aware of and the experts say it is "highly effective." According to WILX, in the latest scam, a hacker sends an e-mail with an attachment. That e-mail could come from someone you know, who has already had their account hacked. When you click on the attachment it will re-direct you to what looks like the Gmail login page, but it's a fake site and that's where they'll attempt to steal your information.
According to Forbes, the best way to prevent yourself from getting scammed is to pay very close attention to the address bar. They've posted some pictures of what the fake address bar looks like and have also posted more ways to avoid be 'phished'. Click here to get that info.
