Scam Sensor is a specialized software solution for Microsoft Outlook that identifies e-mail scams and protects companies and individuals from becoming victims to e-mail fraud that is estimated to be worth around 500 million dollars a year in the US alone.

Scam Sensor uses a proprietary heuristic algorithm to identify fraudulent e-mails. This Outlook add-in will alert users about misleading URL links inside these messages in order to prevent accidental link clicking. This is critical because most phishing sites attempt to install spyware and trojans in addition to trying to fool unsuspecting victims into giving away their personal data.

Here are some advantages of Scam Sensor. It requires no administration, making it easy to use for the elderly or novice e-mail users. Scam Sensor requires no Internet connection, so there are no issues with firewalls. Since the software is not server-based, there are no issues concerning privacy either. The program seamlessly integrates into Microsoft Outlook and does not require any "training" in order to identify phishing.

It’s very important to understand that Scam Sensor is not an anti-spam solution as well as that no anti-spam solution can guarantee protection against phishing attacks. Scam Sensor is an additional safety layer that can save hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Scam Sensor has been specifically designed with both companies and regular folks in mind. While phishers usually target individuals, most of the damage is inflicted upon businesses, because employees aren’t always instructed about the danger of e-mail fraud.

Scam Sensor is distributed electronically over the Internet; free demo version is available at for evaluation. The program costs 22 US Dollars to register.
