ALERT 11/09/2019. There is a very convincing scam being promoted by email that has been referred to us by a member of Sutton Neighbourhood Watch. The scam encourages you (the recipient) to verify your email address. It is at first sight quite convincing in that the email appears to be coming from your email provider, it has the extension of your email provider (in the attached example yourmail.com) and in that example your name “you”. You can see the form of the scam email in the attachment and will note that the sender in this instance is actually “firstname.lastname@example.org”. The attachment is the original email as received by our member (several times over last day or so) with identity overwritten with our example email address etc.
If you receive an email from your provider and it looks like the example, DO NOT CLICK ON THE VERIFICATION LINK. (our example is not a working example!)
If you have any concerns contact your email provider (as did our member) to confirm that it is a scam and of course let us know.
