When you think of hacking, most envision someone using a computer & complex code to break into your computer.
🧾Your account is overdrawn
💳Unusual credit card activity
📨Email password expiring
That update can be malware or ransomware. Something that can hijack your device, & either 'listen' to what you do or shut it down completely & demand 💵 to regain control
✔️Don't give your personal information out to people who call you
✔️Don't click on links from unsolicited emails or text messages
✔️Don't participate in social media quizzes that ask for personal information or pics
If you receive a phone call, do not give them any information. Immediately hang up & call the real company immediately.

🔥URGENT or threatening subject line
🗣️Grammar or spelling is not right
