ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The warning that you've reached your email storage limit looks like just another email message from your company's IT department.

It says you'll be blocked from sending and receiving messages unless you click on a link to validate your account and add storage.

But look more closely.

Is that really the company's logo? Scammers can duplicate it, and if you do click on the link, you could open the door to an identity thief.

Better Call Harry has advice on how to protect yourself.

    We've been following the case of a Rockdale County man who put down $3,500 on a truck, but when his financing fell through, the dealer refused to refund the money. Roger Crews took Quick Cars owners to small claims court and won. But weeks after the ruling, Crews still hasn't received his money.

    A Fairburn homeowner was getting a basic cable upgrade when a power surge hit her home, costing her thousands of dollars in damages. She thought the Comcast contractor was to blame, but an electrician's inspection returned a much different finding.

    Posting an item to sell online? One woman has a warning for you. She found a buyer for a couch. The buyer wanted to pay by money order, and she agreed. But when she received that money order, it was made out for hundreds of dollars more than the cost of the couch. As Better Call Harry reports, that was not the only suspicious part about this transaction.
