I am out of time for this week but here is my tip.
Be very careful when next you go to open those emails from unknown senders or from those posing as well-known news media outlets such as CNN.  A few days ago, I accidentally opened one that seemed to come from CNN but when I read the news headline that said that thousands were killed in an earthquake a few hours ago, I immediately grew suspicious and then I exited in a hurry when the email asked me to click on the link below in order to receive more breaking news.
At the business desk, I'm Donna J Jodhan wishing you a terrific day and week ahead.
