Phishing IQ Test

Spammers are coming up with ever increasingly clever ways to part you from your money.  Phishing is when someone sends you an email that is intended to look authentic, but is really designed to trick you into revealing critical aspects of your identity or other confidential information.  These emails are “sent” from places like Ebay, Microsoft, Paypal, banks, credit cards, etc.  Can you spot the difference between the real thing and a fake?  Take the  MailFrontier ’s Phishing IQ Test and see.


I got a 9 out of 10.  How did you score?
