Maybe a better example would be:

The authentic email is : WATCHDEALER1224@gmail.com

The impersonator’s email: WATCHDEALERl224@gmail.com

(In this example, the 1 is changed to a lower case “I” that looks like a sans serif 1 )

Another is to put a random dot between words in the addy.

Again, thanks for the warning.

In his example, he changed uppercase L to uppercase I, not lower case L
