Spot the Scam!

Spot the Scam!
Regardless of what you end up doing on the internet, you are bound to get scam emails at least once. These are also called phishing emails 🚨⁠

Shopify and other e-commerce platforms are the same, and here I hope to educate you in the tell-tale differences between a legitimate email from Shopify, and a scam email 🦠⁠

1. Always check the sender email. If an email is from Shopify, it will most likely have the email suffix If it has anything else, be alert! 👀⁠

2. Pay close attention to the punctuation and phrasing in the email. All emails are checked for grammar before sending so there shouldn’t be any glaringly obvious errors or strange phrasing 🤔⁠

3. If you are not 100% convinced the email is from Shopify, do not click any links or buttons or download content. If it’s spam, it could lead you to a fishy website that might take your personal details 😱⁠

For all spam emails, forward them to so their dedicated team can file and research the scam.⁠

Please note that this is not always fool-proof and if you have any doubts, don’t interact with the email and notify Shopify support! For more information, visit⁠
