The following are signs that someone is phishing:

  • The e-mail address/domain name doesn’t match the company they claim to represent
  • The message sent to you contains spelling mistakes or poor use of language
  • You are being asked to take action and enter personal details
  • The message asks you to click a link or download a file
  • The message you have received has come out of the blue
  • You receive a message from a company that you have no history dealing with

This is not an exhaustive list so, if you are unsure, ask somebody else to check the information you have been sent. A simple way of checking is to contact the company using details you find on their official website and asking them about the message you have received.
