A basic article about phishing from Malware Bytes. While basic it is still informative.

One of the most important points brought up is something that Patty, along with myself and others) have always advocated... ALWAYS hover over a link to make sure that it is going to where it is supposed to go.

I got that email this morning, like you I always hover over links whenever I see them. It always surprises me to see some of the places it wants to send me when I look at some of the emails that get put in my Junk folders. :-)
