Still receive emails attempting to sell you pills or body part enlargement plans? Or perhaps the Nigerians have already discovered your business and are offering millions in return for your banking details?
You might wonder who in their right mind would even respond to these. But the fact is people do!
People receive emails urging them to open and respond to documents attached to emails or urging them to login and correct anomalies in their credit card or bank transactions.
These emails appear to be authentic enough to make a substantial number of the receivers respond.
Fact is, even if 1 or 2% receivers respond to these emails it spells success for the spamsters and disaster for the respondents. You can protect your staff from being amongst the group that responds by simply stopping them from receiving spam emails in the first place.
Fact is, documents attached to spam emails come laden with computer virus or Trojans. A single infection in your computer network is enough to cause weeks of headaches and resultant data losses could cause incalculable damage to your financial bottom line.
