Identify False (Spoof or Phishing) E-mails
If you receive an e-mail asking you for personal information or directing you to a site other than csdev8.co.uk, it could be a "spoof" or "phishing" e-mail and should be considered as fraudulent.
Genuine Mike Sanderson Electricals e-mails come from an e-mail address ending in "@mikesandersonelectrics.co.uk". If you receive an e-mail in a different format i.e. email@example.com, you can be sure that it's fraudulent.
Some phishing e-mails contain links to websites that may appear to go to us but will take you to a completely different website. If you hover over the link you often can see the underlying URL which will be in a different format to those linked to within our website.
If you click though on a phishing e-mail and are taken to a page looking like "Your Account" or anything that asks you to verify or change your personal details, you should consider it as fraudulent.
Choose a Strong Password
Use a different password on csdev8.co.uk to that which you use on other websites. If you need help remembering your password, write it down and keep it in your purse, wallet, or another secure location. Use at least 8 characters and though it's not a requirement, adding numbers or special characters to your password will make it even stronger. For example, the password "rivers273Tp" is a much stronger password than "rivers." Avoid passwords that are easy to guess, such as "secret," "password," "letmein," "safe," or "123456". Avoid using only a dictionary word, your name, e-mail address, or other personal information that can easily be obtained.
Passwords are case sensitive. For instance, "RIVERS186" and "rivers186" are two different passwords. When choosing a password, remember the capitalisation you use, and make sure that the CAPS LOCK key on your keyboard isn't turned on.
Protect Your Passwords
Keep your passwords private; anybody who knows your password may access your account. Avoid using the same password for multiple online accounts. Always log out when you complete an online session on a public computer. Change your password periodically.
Protect Your System
Some phishing e-mails contain attachments and link to websites that try to install malicious software on your computer. Here are some ways you can help protect your system against these types of threats.
Install anti-virus or anti-malware software from a reputable company.
Once it's installed, be sure to run a full scan of your computer regularly. You'll also want to run a full scan if you visit a site through a link in a phishing e-mail or open an unsolicited attachment.
Please be aware that that there are many fake anti-malware products out there. Don't install one from a website that tells you your computer is infected, as these warnings may be fake. Microsoft has free anti-malware software at http://microsoft.com/security.
Check for and install updates for all programs on your computer. Run Windows Update if you have a Windows computer or Software Update if you have a Mac. We also strongly recommend that you make sure Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, and Java are all up to date on your computer.
If you've typed a password on a malicious website, change it on the legitimate website immediately.
Select strong passwords of eight characters or more that include a variety of letters, numbers, and symbols.
If you entered your credit card information on a malicious website or replied to an email with that information, immediately contact your credit card company. Many fake e-mail messages ask you to respond with your credit card number or click a link and type it there to "verify your identity." If you did so, your credit card number may have been stolen and we recommend that you contact your credit card company to report it and get a new card issued.
Never reply to unsolicited messages.
Replying to phishing and spam messages only confirms to the sender that they have a valid e-mail address to send more spam and phishing to.
