National Online Safety Bulletin for Parents – Scam Emails

Please find below our latest guide from the National Online Safety Hub.  This week is about Scam Emails.

Email scams are when you receive an email from someone purporting to be a genuine person or company, but is actually an online fraudster trying to trick you into disclosing personal information. This is often referred to as ‘phishing’. Normally, people click on the links in an email assuming that they will be directed to a trustworthy website – but fake sites, closely resembling the real thing, are increasingly being set up by cyber criminals specifically to capture your personal information, which could, in turn, jeopardise your financial, emotional and possibly even physical wellbeing.

In the guide, you’ll find tips on a number of potential risks such as viruses, financial damage and personal safety.
