You can learn to recognize phishing emails. They frequently contain poor grammar and unusual wording. Sometimes they will use a legitimate-looking email address, but they don't always. In some cases, there is a mismatch between the name and the email address in the From field. However, these are not always present. Phishing emails usually want you to visit a site with an unusual URL that has nothing to do with the purported sender. In the example below, there was a potentially malicious PDF file attached to the original email.
