The holidays are a busy time of year for shoppers, but also for scam artists. Scammers will increase the number of phishing emails trying to trick people into giving out their personal information.

ESET and the NBC Today show put together a fun quiz using a mix of real emails from companies and phishers. Can you get 100 percent right?
