During the Lockdown in 2020/2021 the scammers have been out in force.
Here are some that I have been seeing as I work and I’ve had both on my business emails – look out for them and ensure your Staff and Family are aware of what to look for – Knowledge is the only way to beat these scumbags!
- Always check who sent the email to you – if it’s about your Lloyds account for example it will be from Lloyds
- Always check the URL (the web address in the link), where is it sending you, it should be the company’s web address. Some scams will have a URL similar to the genuine one, for example the scam one could be www.lloyds_bank_uk.com instead of just www.lloydsbank.com. This is why it’s always better to do it manually.
- If you are unsure, then contact the company or simply log in directly in your browser without clicking the link!
