Always check the links

Even if you are sure of who you think sent the mail, check that the links are genuine.

This scam is likely to be quite effective because it is apparently well done and believable, but that just means that people don't pay enough attention to with whom they work.

If you're a professional using a product, you should know what domains that product is attached to. Any mail you receive purporting to be from that company should absolutely only be from one if its own domains.

If you have a doubt, just email that company's support and forward them a copy, asking them if it is genuine.

Think before you click.
