Can you spot a fraudulent email?

You may occasionally receive emails pretending to be from companies such as Amazon, eBay, PayPal or Apple. Do you know how to identify one which is clearly NOT genuine?

Look at the following email which I received and see what you feel is suspect …. (there’s quite a few !)

If you have any doubts about an email, do NOT click on any links, but log onto your account using the supplier’s website – eg. http://www.amazon.co.uk, http://www.ebay.co.uk, http://www.paypal.co.uk or http://www.apple.com with your password to check for any alerts.
