We think this is a really great article from Conor Pope in this morning's Irish Times - it's worth taking time out to look at his synopsis of the most common scams listed below, but in addition we advise you take on board the following advice:
Always read your emails carefully (watching you for tell tell tale grammatical errors, spelling mistakes)
Make a habit of hovering (never click) over the sender's details as it can reveal bogus email addresses when you take a closer look
Never give details to unsolicited calls from Microsoft, your bank or any company who proclaims that your financial or email accounts are in danger
We strongly advise that organisations don't put details of their financial or accounts staff on their company website as were have seen a huge increase in personalised targeting of such staff.
And finally, watch out for fake Office 365 notification emails, especially links to fake 365 websites or log on screens that just that pop up on your computer
