Scam Postal Mail – Beware

We know that clicking links in E-mails may be unsafe. We are quoting some links below, but if you are reluctant to click on these then please feel free to search the web for Scamnesty, which should lead you to National Trading Standards website Friends Against Scams.

It’s the final week of #Scamnesty. Have you received an unwanted gift of scam mail this Christmas? Take a stand against scams and send it to the Friends team! Head over to the @AgainstScams website for information www.friendsagainstscams.org.uk/scamnesty#Scamnesty#ScamAware.

Use this Winter break to have a talk with your family about scam mail. Criminals will use any opportunity to steal money. If you think a letter that’s been received could be a scam, send it to @AgainstScams to investigate for #Scamnesty www.friendsagainstscams.org.uk/scamnesty#ScamAware.

Happy New Year from Friends Against Scams! 2021 is the perfect time to be more #ScamAware. Talk to your friends and family about any unsolicited post you might receive; does any of it seem like it could be a scam? Send it to @AgainstScams for #Scamnesty www.friendsagainstscams.org.uk/scamnesty.

If you have received a suspicious E-mail then you can forward it to the National Cyber Security Centre at report@phishing.gov.uk. They will investigate it and take action where possible.Timely alerts from people like you help them to act quickly and protect many more people from being affected.

Please note: You should not report a crime to the NCSC in this way.
