THE SCAMMERS ARE FURIOUSLY BUSY TODAY, INBOXES ALL OVER THE UK ARE BEING HIT RIGHT NOW WITH OFFICIAL LOOKING EMAILS PURPORTING TO COME FROM BT SUCH AS THE ONE BELOW.
Much like the other phishing scams we’ve seen lately, clicking through will take you to a fake website where you’ll be instructed to enter sensitive information, almost certainly including your payment details.
This isn’t the first time scammers have attempted this, with other efforts being reported on BT’s community forums earlier this year. However, this is the first we’ve spotted with the updated branding.
Our advice on dealing with phishing scams remains the same; check for the telltale signs, such as spelling errors and suspicious-looking email domains.
If you’re not sure, speak directly with the company it’s purporting to be from via its official channels. Do not click through on any links.
