Recently, I received an email from Apple, asking me to complete a transaction that I obviously never initiated on my iPad; I was instructed to provide my Bank details. Another time, I received an electronic Invoice via email, with instructions to quickly effect payment so that one of my website hosting packages will be renewed. Coincidentally, one of my website hosting packages should expire this month but from the appearance and tone of the email, I figured there was something fishy. So I swung into security mode without further ado.
In case you’re wondering, what I do when such emails majestically stroll into my mail box is to double-tap the sender’s name (e.g. Apple) and voila! The sender’s email address will be revealed. Like humans, Apps and Devices behave differently and require a slightly different approach to revealing senders’ information. So if you’re experiencing difficulties revealing a sender’s email address or resolving related issues, Fetch Consulting is on standby to help.
