WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
If you get an e-mail that seems weird, do not
follow its instructions.
 Roll your mouse over whatever link that is
provided and check to make sure that the link
is legitimate.
 When in doubt, discard the e-mail. If it is an
urgent issue you can always call your bank or
online payment source for details.
