email-spam-final3

I want to share a tactic I use to figure out if an email is legitimate or not. I hover my cursor over the links in an email, which brings up the full pathway of where the email is going. In the screenshot above, you can’t see my cursor, but it is hovering over the Play button. The red arrow I drew here points to the link that displays after a second or two. Most email clients do this.

That URL doesn’t seem legitimate to me, so junk it must be. And I didn’t even have to click the link to find out.
