As a general rule, when reading emails that claim to be from companies or organizations, look at the domain from which the email came from and make sure that the domain coincides with a legitimate business (ex: @phpbb.com)

If it is from a domain that provides free email accounts, including gmail, hotmail, live, yahoo, etc, discard it.
