Do you use online banking? If so, please read on.

A reminder made it's way into my secure inbox recently, from my bank offering me a warning about the rise in spoof messages from Fraudsters.

A worthwhile reminder which I'm passing on to you below. Don't be scared to use online banking, it's pretty safe, so long as you go direct to your bank's site rather than use links in any email, they can be faked.

Never rely on caller ID alone to authenticate a caller or a text message. Criminals...


Your Amazon.com order has shipped, but sent from amazons.com! Fake Amazon email advising that your $1620+ computer has shipped is just that, a fake.

There is a link to click, supposedly so you can check something, but it actually leads to a Brazilian website which no doubt tries to get you to enter your amazon login details or confirm your credit card so as to cancel the order, though I'm guessing here as I'll never click on such a fake link.

Just delete such fake emails, or report them...


Scam Email WarningYet another scam/cyberfraud email arriving today. This time alledgedly from an Italian firm advising that I've a parcel to collect, from Italy! It's supposed to be a cash prize from something I've never entered not to mention the sender's email address has been spoofed (faked).

Dear Esteemed Customer,
 Your package/diplomatic pouch is ready to be delivered. You have to call stating your LAST NAME and First Name for us to verify your details and also send your telephone number with...


Fake Email - CyberFraudYet another fake email, alledgedly from Barclaycard, but of course is quite fake and should be ignored. Report it by all means to phishing at barclaycard.co.uk if you wish.

CyberScam! No personal details given, just a link to confirm your details to increase your credit limit by £750,00 and the link, IF clicked, would take to you a fake site that is actually redirected via bit.do

Most obvious givaway that it's a fake? I've never had a Barclaycard!

sms imageJust received a text message this morning from 07751 634 682 stating that "Our records indicate you're in line for receiving compensation for a non-fault motor accident. Reply YES to claim now. Reply NO to opt-out."

As they are lying (I'm not on their records and I've not being in an accident) this is obviously a fraudulent text message from an unscrupulous "firm" don't reply to it, not even to say NO to "opt-out". It'll be one of these fake unsubscribe options where by confirming your...


danger iconJust had notification that the current load of spam eMails going the rounds which have a title of Invoice: followed by a number and an attachment, probably a word .doc are the newer version of Cryptlocker. Cryptlocker was a nasty virus that among other things encrypted your documents and the ONLY way to recover them was to pay the spammers some £300 in the hopes that they would give you the de-cryption key.

This latest infection relies on you opening the so called .doc file and then...


danger iconJust received a "Sainsbury gift card notification" email, and of course it's NOT from J S Sainsburys, the supermarket group, though it is trying to imply that so as to fool you into clicking on the embedded links which point NOT to Sainsbury's but in fact to various tracker.mcontact.pro sites and was sent from zepreem.com, again not Sainsbury's.

As always with those fake emails, you should never open such an email, nor click on any of the links and if there is an attachment don't open it as it...
