Trick or Treat: Can You Identify a Phishing Email?

By Michael Perna | October 30, 2013

Phishing is alive and well. Not a week goes by that I do not see some kind of malicious attempt to gather my information. Most of the time I am able to tell the difference between a phishing email and the good intentions of automated notification systems but there is always the rare case that a scam artist is more adept at spoofing than I am at recognizing the spoof.

Can you tell the difference between a trick and a treat?

Try your hand at the following quiz, marking "Trick" for a phishing email or "Treat" for the sincere. Share your results in the comments! We will return in a few weeks to report the results.
