Even if you know the sender, often times hackers can spoof, pretend to be, someone you know.Look at the content of the message, does this message make sense coming from this person?
Phishtank is a community of users who keep track of known phishing sites in a large database.
Anyone can join and submit suspected phishing sites.
, even when all the results are listed as safe, do not assume automatically the site is safe to visit.
Also, look at the date of the last scan to determine how effective these results are.
When determining how safe a website is, it's important to consider the context of the link in question.
If the link was in an email, do you know the sender?
Submitted sites are then verified by other members before it appears on their blacklist.
Feel free to re-scan the url using the scan box above.
We use various well known link scanning services to check websites for malware and phishing.
If just one result gives a suspicious result, we declare the site as "may not be safe".
And if more than one scan gives a suspicious result, we say "this site is not safe".
