Fraudsters may send genuine-looking emails that contain viruses. These viruses, install a malicious code on your Computer without your knowledge and extract your confidential information that you use to access your online profile / account etc.
Tips to bear in mind:
Keep your computer updated with latest anti-virus / anti-spyware software.
Install a personal firewall on your computer to protect your account.
Do not click on links or open attachments in unknown or unsolicited (spam) emails.
