How to avoid getting fooled by fishing or scams

Fishing or scams are sometimes quite difficult to detect. Ideally, each user sould be able to easily understand the header of each mail in order to determine doubtful flawless if a mail is legitimate or not. But this ability is not for everyone.

A concrete example that we believe is better than any explanation where no illustration is shown.

You receive an email from Orange. (Well it looks like!)
Naturally, if you are not an Orange customer, a basic rule is move the mail into the trash directly;
But admit that you are a customer and you have recently completed a transaction at Orange services...

This is the mail in your inbox:


Everything seems normal (or so ...)

The mail looks like this:


It is clear that it is poorly written but we want to encourage you to click on the link below "direct connection"


The trick, very simple, we offer it to pass the mouse pointer (without clicking), so that your e-mail shows you the real link where you will be redirected when clicked.

It is clear that we will go without clicking on clineservd . com that has nothing to do with operator Orange.

A classic case of fishing, which is designed to rob you of your own free your bank information!
