Here’s how to stop it.
What to watch for: There are a variety, from phishing to spear phishing, and most of the times the fraudster won’t use legitimate email addresses.
So you should check the domain and user name, or use an email verification tool to see if they use the same email address.
The more people you have on the email list, the more likely they are to be using fraudulent accounts.
You can also check whether the account is linked to a specific website.
Do not trust any email account that is used for the same account you use to register your account.

If you can’t verify the email address, use a third-party service such as Lookout.
