Coppers Corner – Online Scammer Warning

Police have dealt with two significant online scams in the last month. These have involved defrauding of significant amounts of money. If you get emails with content that you are not 100% sure about then ring and speak to the person you think the email originated from. This will give you a better idea of if the email is a scam. Be inquisitive and make sure you are satisfied with the legitimacy of any email before responding, clicking on links, or following instructions in the body of the email. If it smells of scam………just delete it.

Email scams can contain malware, lead to ransom demands, finacial and data loss. BEWARE
