How do I recognise fake web sites?

0

Fraudsters often try to direct people to fraudulent websites via email and pop-up windows and try to collect your personal information. In many cases there is no easy way to determine that you are on a fake website because the URL (Domain Name) will contain the name of the institution it is faking. However, if you type, or cut and paste, the URL into a new web browser window and it does not take you to a legitimate website, or you get an error message, it was probably just a cover for a fake website.
