Report phishing emails

Did you know that you can now report phishing emails to the National Cyber Security Centre, a government department that deals with them, by forwarding the email to report@phishing.gov.uk

 

They will analyse the content of the suspect email and any websites it links to where appropriate.

If they discover activity that they believe is malicious, they may:

 . seek to block the address the email came from, so it can no longer send emails

 . work with website hosting companies to remove links to malicious websites

 . raise awareness of commonly reported suspicious emails and methods used (via partners)

Care should be taken with any communication that asks you to share personal or financial information.

 

There are a number of ways you can protect yourself from attacks like this and the NCSC has published plenty of advice which will help you to stay secure online at  National Cyber Security Centre
