Throughout the pandemic there have unfortunately been numerous scams circulating around and I want to remind everyone to please be cautious of suspicious phone-calls and emails.
The UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre have been working hard to tackle scams – and they have received over 1.7 million reports of scams!
As of the 31st July they had already removed over 6,500 scams and nearly 16,000 URLs, and they want to assure everyone that they look into every single report that they receive.
You can report a suspicious email you think could be a scam to The UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not download or click on anything unless you are absolutely certain of the sender.
