Were You Expecting That?

From time to time we all get unexpected emails. Maybe it is from a family member asking for a favour, but those aren't the ones I'm referring to. The emails I talking about are ones that invite action. They want you to click somewhere, or reply with certain information (yes I know emails from Team iSG do this at times).

The difference is what you're expecting! You should expect an email from Team iSG with information about a request. And you should expect to be asked to follow a link to update information in that email.

What if you get an email that looks like this?


My initial reaction to is simply delete this and NOT follow any of the links. Why? I wasn't expecting any files to be sent to me. So that sets off warning bells in my head (plus it means 1 less email to have to deal with).

Of course a little further down in my inbox there was an email from a friend telling me they were sending me some photos through a service called TrasferBigFiles.com. That gave me the opportunity to question them and verify that I was actually going to be getting files and not some malware or a virus on my computer.
