Itâs human nature to use the shortcuts provided to us. The criminal element is getting better at recognizing that and using it to their advantage.
One of the best things you can do when going to a site where you need to identify yourself, is to type out the URL. Avoid clicking on links in an email or text messages.
If it isnât already second nature, start building the habit of looking at the URL critically before clicking on a link. Hovering your mouse cursor over a link should show you where the link will take you.
- For the ELGA site, is ELGA spelled correctly?
- Is it where you thought you were going?
Remember: the official URL for the main ELGA website is www.ELGACU.com
If there is anything about the link that feels off to you, donât click the link and donât input information about yourself on the site.
Remember that your identity and personal information is valuable and there are those who will try and trick you. Donât give them the chance.
