I feel like this is the most important thing to encourage people to do to avoid phishing. Not clicking links directly in emails is a great start, but hovering over them and checking the URLs matchup and you know they're safe is one step that can really stop most phishing attacks I feel.

Not just money transfers
The article focuses on fraudulent requests to transfer money, but intimidating emails like this can also be used on employees without the authority to do such transfers.  These could be intimidated into divulging account numbers, customer data, and other information which could be used in identity theft and other types of crimes.  All users need to be vigilent about such communication and be certain about who they are communicating with.

How to get help
I've been receiving phishing emails but because I don't do any banking or bills online its not a big deal that my phone service provider has done nothing when I had call forwarding charges and mobile data usage of 15GB and then slowly it attack my business accounts and any device I use the hotspot never works. Now its spreading through the phones data by stealing app information and my files have been corrupted and the list goes on and on. Just because I haven't had my fincinal breached its never talked about the fact my entire accounts, identity, business online website, and that I can't even delete my gmail because the data to download which I need for all the connections to Google web services has a virus. So I have no way to get my blogger, adsence, GA, and etc changed or the data stored its not that big of a deal to get help. This attack is going through every device that was under my mobile service connection and the accounts that it has been the start of it can't use on new laptops or phone because I'm afraid it will get through to those. So I wanted to know what do I do. The emails original view of code is 11 pages long with my device information when it was only a few lines. Yet T-Mobile hasn't ran test or anything for the past 2 yrs only now the FTC FCC BBB and DOJ is taking me seriously. Only because I'm smart not to do my banking or bills through accounts online and not go paperless its not important topic or issue. If you can tell me where there's any topic on that I would love to read it because I've not found one
