When was the last time you got an urgent email warning you that your account was about to be disabled unless you reregistered the account? Did you fall for it? How good are you at sorting out the phishing emails from the legitimate requests?

With the huge increase in spam recently, it’s a guarantee that you either have received or soon will receive a phishing email – and you probably have received several in the past week alone. Take this test to see how good you are at sorting the good from the bad.

Note: According to the makers of this test,
19% of phishing emails are incorrectly identified as legitimate by the test takers
48% of good messages are incorrectly identified as phishing.

Remember, never follow the “convenient” link in an unsolicited or unverified email. If you think it might be a legitimate message, contact the sender directly.
