Phishing: Do You Know It When You See It?

Last week I shared a Phishing quiz shared in an article by: ByAMANDA SCHUPAK

Phishing quiz: Can you spot a scam when you see one? Don't be so sure

Today, an email landed in my Inbox that looks like this:

Given that I haven't driven a car in or near Chicago in a decade or more, the chances that this parking violation actually connects to me as the driver are 0%.

I wonder how many people who live in or around Chicago would be curious enough about this email to click the hyperlink at the bottom?   Don't worry, I'm not sharing the live hyperlink in this PNG photo of what was on my screen.

You might want to take the Phishing quiz provided in the CBS News article I've shared above.  You might be surprised when you see your own results.
