Fact vs. Fiction Archive

Fiction:
If you receive a phishing e-mail, you should report it to someone, like a supervisor or e-mail service provider.

Fact:
Just delete it! Many users feel compelled to report phishing e-mails, but when you forward a suspicious e-mail, you increase the likelihood that someone will click that malicious link down the line. If we all get in the habit of recognizing and deleting suspicious e-mails, phishing will become a weaker threat altogether.
