I am going to try something a little different with this article as a way to learn from each other. I am going to make it interactive and request your participation, by leaving comments below. Please do not be afraid to leave a comment. You can use alias names for all I care. The strategy here is to learn from each other and to have some FUN! The below scenario, I tested in a sandboxed environment, to determine what the outcome would ultimately be.
I am going to let you be the judge on this and tell me if this is a safe and legitimate email or not; AND how you came to that conclusion (leave comments below). There are clues… You can actually click on the email example below to see a screenshot of the site that I was ultimately directed to.
Note: All comments are moderated (by me) and may not immediately be displayed, until I approve them.
I received the following email, from what appears (visually) to be from WalMart. WalMart, being the conglomerate that they are, is going to give me a $500 gift card.
Is this a safe and legitimate email?
