Do you open the door to your home to strangers? I didn’t think so. Then why would you open an email from someone you don’t know?
It happens more and more that fake emails arrive in your inbox with a subject meant to scare you into action: “Unsuccessful Attempts to Access Your Email” “Account Suspension” “Yahoo [or AOL or Gmail] Security”. Scammers play on your fear or curiosity betting that one or both will compel you to not only open the email, but also click on the link in the body of the email.
