DON'T FALL FOR IT! If you get an email that sounds strange, or requests you to buy gift cards, etc... DO NOT FOLLOW THROUGH. Hover over links, double check sender's address... to make sure they appear legitimate. Before you click on anything, or respond, make sure the email is legitimate and/or contact the sender first.
