Ways to Detect a Phishing Email

Websitepro from Websitepro NZ Ltd

1. The message is sent from a public email domain
No legitimate organisation will send emails from an address that ends ‘@gmail.com’.

1. The message is sent from a public email domain
No legitimate organisation will send emails from an address that ends ‘@gmail.com’.

Not even Google. Most organisations, except some small operations, will have their own email domain and company accounts. For example, legitimate emails from Google will read ‘@google.com’.

If the domain name (the bit after the @ symbol) matches the apparent sender of the email, the message is probably legitimate.

Top tip: Look at the email address, not just the sender

Your inbox might display a name, like ‘DHL’, and the subject line. When you open the email, you already know (or think you know) who the message is from and jump straight into the content.

When crooks create their bogus email addresses, they often have the choice to select the display name, which doesn’t have to relate to the email address at all.

They can, therefore, use a bogus email address that will turn up in your inbox with the display name DHL. Where as the email id will be DHL@notice256.getaccess.com. The fact that the part after @ is some random digits and characters should itself flag a concern.

2. Domain name is misspelt:

Google the domain name on the email (part after @) to check if the business is legitimate.

A hacker bought the domain ‘gimletrnedia.com’ (that’s r-n-e-d-i-a, rather than m-e-d-i-a)

3. Attachments:

This will either be an infected attachment that you’re asked to download or a link to a bogus website.

Suspicious links

You can spot a suspicious link if the destination address doesn’t match the context of the rest of the email.

For example, if you receive an email from Netflix, you would expect the link to direct you towards an address that begins ‘netflix.com’.

Unfortunately, many legitimate and scam emails hide the destination address in a button, so it’s not immediately apparent where the link goes to.

Thankfully, this is straightforward: on a computer, hover your mouse over the link, and the destination address appears in a small bar along the bottom left of the browser.

On a mobile device, hold down on the link and a pop-up will appear containing the link.

A similar initiative was launched in Australia at the start of the month, and buses became known as “Jabba the Bus”.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has challenged the public to come up with a better name, but has ruled out “Busey McBusface”.
