That’s the best advice if a bogus email looking like if it’s from McDonald’s ends-up in your inbox.
It’s an email circulating asking you to take part in a survey for the fast food chain. In return the email states it will credit your account $80.
While it looks clean and slick, in a statement, McDonald’s say it’s a fraudulent email that is NOT from them.
In fact, beware.
It’s a Phishing e-mail from scam artists who use use official looking emails and websites designed to trick you into believing they are legitimate.
All in an effort to get their hands on personal information of yours, like your social security, bank account and credit card numbers.
The fast food chain says these emails are NOT from McDonald’s and that McDonald’s does not send out emails asking folks to share any personal financial information.
