T’is the Season to be Scammed….

T’is the Season to be Scammed….

Just a quick reminder to all,  to be careful what you are clicking on when you are reading your emails or social networking …

There are SO many emails circulating at the moment that are scam / phishing emails, where their only purpose is to get valuable information from you or your computer.

Just today, I have had “Royal Mail Group” – lost /missing parcel, “” Thank you for your order click here to view the status of your order, and a DHL – re-arrange a delivery.  They are very convincing, and must be fooling a lot of people out there, so you just need to be very careful what you click on.

Please remember:

  • If an attachment has a .zip file attached – NEVER click on it
  • If an email provides a link to a website, that then asks you to input your username and password (or any other information) – DON’T DO IT.  Always visit the website in question independently, without clicking on the link, and check your account that way.
  • If an email has an offer that seems “To good to be True” – it usually is !!

As well as emails, there are lots of posts on Facebook and twitter along the lines of: £500 giveaway from Tesco/Asda/Sainsburys or similar. Like and Share the page to enter.  Or IPad giveaways.  Same rule applies – if it seems “To good to be True” – it usually is – don’t like and share the pages – it’s usually just a con – and who knows what these people are doing with the information they can access when you like their pages !!

The Internet can be a wonderful thing, but you need to be careful !!!

Please share this information with friends and relatives who may not be aware of these issues.
