- Fake order or tracking emails: Emails that appear to be from Amazon or another popular retailer, leading users to click without thinking because it looks identical to a real one.
- CEO impersonated email: End of the year email that looks like it's coming from your CEO or manager as nearly every company is thinking about holiday bonuses, corporate gifts, and holiday greeting cards for customers.
