The simplest solutions are always the best – Just don’t click links in emails. Just open up your browser and click your saved Envato link, you can always count on that one.
Indeed the phishing and the scams began to spread more and the people who create them to become more creative in order to get your data, but it still has a way to prevent this from happening even if you become a victim of phishing / scam.
My idea is to put a two-step verification login system with sms code login requirement (TFA – Two Factor Authentication) to allow the user to enter their profile such as already have made Google, Facebook, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, Twitter, Dropbox, Github, Apple, PayPal and many other popular sites. You can add and other security improvements like security questions and other things to verify if that is the true owner of any account.
I am in favour of two step verification..

¹ You totally saw what I did there, right?
1 – never trust emails links . they usually contain trojan . bookmark envato to access directly and easily ...2 – use anti trojan and anti keylogger like node32 ...3 – for login and entering password i suggest envato add secure keypad for entering password . so if you need to login in untrusted pc your password will be safe ...4 – envato use SSL . so attention to SSL sign in url . like httpS://videohive.net alternative http://videohive.net ...5 – never use “remember password” on browser . others can easily see your password …6 – set your browser history to ” never remember history ” for removing cookies
best option start account verification like FB & Twitter
Always use the parent site for login, avoid links through mails.
And this also comes into the picture

The New Zealand Law Society is warning lawyers about an email which is being sent to people in New Zealand purporting to require the recipients to appear in court.
The email message, from “Green Winick Attorneys at Law” is headed “Notice to appear in court No#6022”.
The message it contains says: “To view copy of the court notice click here. Please, read it thoroughly. Note: If you do not attend the hearing the judge may hear the case in your absence.”
People who receive the message may contact their lawyer to see why they are being required to appear in court.
The Law Society says the message is a fake and contains a virus. The file which people are invited to click on is a Zip or compressed file. It contains a malicious file which infects Windows computers if opened.http://www.lawsociety.org.nz/news-and-communications/news/july-2014/warning-on-green-winick-email-virus
