How to Report Phishing Scam Email Messages

Posted by Nina Whitehurst | Aug 02, 2019 | 0 Comments

This is a bit off topic for this blog, I know, but the unfortunate reality is it is about something that affects us all. I myself get a phishing scam email at least once per week, sometimes more.  I am often tempted to play along for a while to waste the bad actor's time, but unfortunately that wastes my time as well.

So this is what I do now, and I am recommending it to you all, my dear readers.  I simply forward the email to both [email protected] AND [email protected].  If I get a phishing text message, I forward it to SPAM (7726).  The more people do this the better for catching the bad guys.

For more information about how to detect phishing scams and how to report them and how to file a formal complaint if you get scammed, click here.
