  • Never click on links or download attachments from unknown sources.

  • Question the validity of any email that asks you to submit personal or financial information.

They don't even know you are a Norton customer.  They just send these out at random, knowing that a good percentage of recipients will be using Norton.  Those who don't will immediately recognize the scam and ignore the email.  They hope the Norton users will take the bait.
