1827. Link to bad URL

How can I protect myself from going to a bad link? I got an email from Fedex saying my package was being delivered. There was a link. Then I realized I had no package coming from Fedex. Is there a way of telling where I will go if I click on a link?

Hover your mouse over every link you are going to click. Yes it is a pain. But if you are going to click on a link in an email or on the web, hover your mouse over the link before you click on it. You will see the actual URL that you will link to. The link or underlined link may be hiding the real link. By hovering over it you can see the real URL. If it is different or hinky don't click the link. Be very careful, it is scary out there.'
