So how can you keep this from happening to you? First, be skeptical of everything, especially unsolicited emails, even if they are from a friend. If you get an email from what appears to be a legitimate company or bank, call your own bank to see if it’s legit. They will be able to tell you if it’s real or if they have had prior calls concerning the same email. Benjamin Franklin was right when he said an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
