If you have an email account, chances are you’ve also received messages from people you don’t know.
Commonly known as “spam,” such messages can range from being a nuisance that fills up your inbox to potentially serious risks to your computer or even your identity.
Sometimes, they may offer you products or services. Often times they carry links to websites inviting you to enter personal information.
