SCAM ALERT

In News by Bembridge PC

This weeks scam message from Trading Standards has a couple of warnings

  • Lots of reports from residents about text messages purporting to be from different banks. They will ask you to click on a link and if you don’t have accounts with the bank they name this is easy to spot as a scam however the scammers may choose to use the name of the bank you use so just remember that Banks will NEVER contact you in this way. These texts can be forwarded to 7726 where they will be used to gather intelligence in the fight against scams
  • Again more reports this week of emails from various different organisations saying that your information is wrong, or has expired and telling you to click on a link to update – DON’T this is a scam. Scam emails can be forwarded to report@phishing.gov.uk where it will be used to gather intelligence

Stay safe
