Stay Scam Safe

Cyber criminals are preying on fears of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and sending scam emails that try and trick people into clicking on a bad link. Theguidance from the National Cyber Security Centre and other organisations explains what to do if you’ve already clicked on something that could be a scam or phishing email, and provides some of the tell-tale signs of scam emails to look out for, how to protect your devices, how to use video-conferencing services safely and how to be cyber aware at home. 

There is also a useful downloadable document from Age UK that talks about how to avoid doorstep, mail, phone, pension or financial scams and identity theft which may be useful to forward on to older or more vulnerable friends or family but has some useful advice we could all use to stay Scam Safe
