Phishing is on the rise - So be on the lookout, here's why ...

    Computer hackers are increasing their activities this spring. So be on your guard! Individuals as well as businesses can expect increased phishing this spring. The reason for the increased phishing is due to a security breach at the email marketing company that services some of the country’s largest retailers and financial institutions.

    Epsilon, the marketing company that handles email marketing for companies like Walgreens and Citibank had reported a resent security breach that allowed hackers to steal names and email addresses of customers.

    So be on the lookout for seemingly official looking emails. They may just be a phishing scam! It pays to be cautious and suspicious these days.
