  • Examine the sender's email address: Check the sender's email address carefully. Often, scammers use deceptive addresses that may look similar to legitimate ones but contain slight variations or misspellings. Again, we will only ever contact you from an acorns.com email address
  • Beware of urgent or alarming messages: Phishing emails often create a sense of urgency, urging you to take immediate action
  • Look for grammatical errors and poor formatting: Many phishing attempts include grammatical errors, typos, and poorly formatted content
  • Hover over links before clicking: Hover your mouse cursor over any links in the email to preview the actual URL. If the link's destination seems suspicious or doesn't match the displayed text, do not click on it
  • Never share sensitive information: Legitimate organizations will never ask for sensitive data like passwords, social security numbers, or credit card information via email. Avoid sharing such details unless you are confident about the recipient's identity and their purpose for needing the information
  • Watch out for suspicious attachments: Don't open attachments from unfamiliar sources, as they may contain malware or viruses. Even if the sender seems legitimate, exercise caution with unexpected attachments
  • Trust your instincts: If something feels off or too good to be true, trust your gut and proceed with caution
