Beware of email falsely offering financial compensation

Action Fraud Conveyancing

A phishing email that claims to be from the City of London Police which falsely offers financial compensation is currently in circulation, warns Action Fraud.

The email claims to represent departments including the ‘Fraud Intelligence Unit’ and the ‘National Fraud Intelligence Bureau’. Titled ‘compensation fund’, the email includes a letter attachment claiming to offer financial compensation to victims of fraud and uses the City of London Police logo.

In order for compensation to be arranged, the letter states that the receiver of the email should reply disclosing personal information, adding that HSBC and the South African Reserve Bank have been chosen to handle the compensation claims. All of these claims are false.
 
The email and letter are fraudulent and should not be replied to.     If you believe you have become a victim of this fraudulent email get your device checked by a professional and make a report to Action Fraud, the UK’s national fraud and cybercrime reporting centre by calling 0300 123 2040 or via their website http://www.actionfraud.police.uk

There are other ways you can protect yourself:

•    Opening attachments or clicking links contained within emails from unknown sources could result in your device being infected with malware or a virus
•    The City of London Police and the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau will never email you asking for you to disclose personal information
•    You can also receive accurate information about scams and fraud in your area by email, recorded voice and text message, by signing up for FREE at www.actionfraud.police.uk/support-and-prevention/sign-up-to-action-fraud-alert.
