Email – Basic tips for staying safe
AVOIDING COMMON SCAMS – If you receive an email which claims to be from a Bank, Building Society or the Inland Revenue, simply delete the email without opening it. These institutions would NEVER use email to communicate with you – they will phone or send you a letter.
LINKS – It’s safest not to click on links in any email which you weren’t expecting. It may not be a genuine link – so it’s best to type the address yourself into your browser’s address bar.
ATTACHMENTS – Be cautious about opening any email with an attachment you were not expecting to receive. If it doubt, contact the sender by telephone or by sending a separate email to them (to ensure it reaches them directly).
