Verify your email contacts’ physical address

Some of the best-disguised phishing attempts speak to you like a person, use one or two things to personalize the message, and imitate company logos to a tee. But they might be missing a final sign of legitimacy – a real-life address on the email signature. Official business and customer care comms won’t be shy about helping you contact them beyond a direct email reply. If they don’t have a phone number, street address or ZIP code, they probably aren’t who they say they are.
