February has always been looked upon as the month of love and romance where friends become lovers and lovers become soul mates.

It’s easy to get caught up in moment… Well, guess what… Cyber criminals are also taking their part in the hysteria.


As February 14th draws closer, don’t be surprised if several spams and phishing scams find their way into your inbox.
