Scammers do their best to take advantage of holiday season to pull one over on online users, making their emails about having giftcards, winning a prize, or deliveries. Below, here are screenshots of two recent emails we have received, that are definitely fake! Please note of these general flaws to pick out fake emails from real ones:

1. There are usually misspellings or grammar errors that a company of that size would never let through!

2. When you hover over links, they often show a URL that doesn’t make sense to the company, let alone doesn’t even match what url is displayed to you! Why would a link claiming to lead to claiming your rewards mention imprisonment and dehumanization in the URL?

Please be wary of emails that you get this holiday season — if you’re in doubt, go directly to the website yourself and log in for your notification, rather than clicking through the email!
