If you receive a suspicious email (and possibly a text message as well), like the following example from cirklepay.com masquerading as Amazon, let us know at phishbowl@brown.edu and alert Amazon as well before marking it as phishing (see Report Suspicious Emails, Phone Calls, Text Messages, or Webpages on their site for details).

And as a refresher for your phish sleuthing skills, how many clues in the screenshots below can you find that the email is not what it purports to be?
