The year is 2015 – and people still click without thought.

The year of 2015 – the year one would think that after so many spam emails one would start thinking on what comes into the mailbox.
But no.
It’s tax time in Sweden. Several have gotten spam with attachments, from what claims to be the tax office. It’s not.
First of – they don’t have your email. I don’t care how well thought out and graphically correct it may look.
Second – if you are doing your tax on the internet, there’s several steps to take to just log in – to see your data.
Why on earth would they send anything to your email, with the information ATTACHED?
Thirdly- if you’re getting the spams from DHL – DID YOU ORDER ANYTHING FROM DHL TO BEGIN WITH?
No? SO WHY THE HELL DID YOU CLICK IT?!
The same way your normal mail works – you open it, athenticate it, and then authorize it. The authorize action along with the authentication can always be verified by contating the vendor in question.
So… Why are you STILL NOT DOING IT FOR EMAILS?
Here’s the tax office WARING
Did you just hover over that link before you clicked it? I hope so.
That’s all for now.
STOP CLICKING ALL THE THINGS!
