Can You Spot a Phishing Email Scam?

These days email scams are all over the place. For many, it can be hard to spot which one is a scam or which are legit. Well, the folks over at Intel Security has made a 10 question quiz to see if you can really spot a phishing scam.

I took it and got 9/10 right. The last one caught me off guard! But it's from a bank that I've never heard of, and if I found it in my email, I'd ignore it anyways. According to the map below, Americans apparently can't tell a scam from a real email  -  not good for us, but great for those trying to scam you or put harmful software on your computer!


So, what'd you get? Take the test and come back and let me know!
