When you receive emails from major sources like your Banks, credit cards and credit reporting agencies, I recommend you always check the senders email address, (not the name of the email address displayed) but the actual email address, if it’s not from your normal source, then it’s been faked and is a scam to get you to give up your credentials. Be sure to always check the emails senders address especially when using your smart phone as this is where 60% of users read their emails.
