We have been experiencing an influx of calls recently relating to SPAM emails. We wanted to release some guidance on this to help you stay safe online.
Scam emails sadly are on the increase. According to the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), as of September 2023, 24m scams have been reported which has resulted in 146k scams being removed across 268,300 URLs.
Spam emails mimic legitimate corporate messages to get you to act, copying trusted brands branding, even using the exact formatting and logos.
Before you click on anything, check the ‘From Line’ email address to make sure the sender’s email address (not just the alias) is legitimate. (In some cases, even the sender email address can look similar.) If in doubt, contact the company independently to verify that the email is genuine.
