Sometimes known as 'phishing'
Sometimes you get emails pretending to be from legitimate sources,but they’re asking you to give away personal or private information.
This is called phishing.
What does phishing look like?
A phishing email may be disguised as one from the bank, or it may be a more obvious scam with strange logos and poor spelling
There are a few things to look out for:
- The email address is different to usual emails from your bank
- The message isn’t personalised or uses the wrong name
- The message says you need to take action to stop something from happening
