Be very cautious to websites that are using a tactic called Typosquatting (pronounced “type-o-squatting”). These are domains that are misspelled slightly, with the purpose of taking advantage of those accidentally misspelling the domain or performing searches (Google, Yahoo…).
www.google.com could be misspelled as:
Always take a moment to be sure the website you intend to go to is spelled correctly. These fake websites could be looking at stealing information from you, or passing an infection.
Specifically: Typosquatting, also called URL hijacking, a sting site, or a fake URL, is a form of cybersquatting, and possibly brandjacking which relies on mistakes such as typographical errors made by Internet users when inputting a website address into a web browser. They then use this “fake” domain name to email employees and plant phishing attacks. Please do not interact with any emails from the “impostor domain”.
Before you click a link, double check the link and where it goes, up in the address bar.
