Action Fraud have had an increase in reports about fake British Gas emails claiming
to offer refunds. The links provided in the emails lead to genuine-looking British Gas
phishing websites that are designed to steal the usernames and passwords for British Gas accounts.
Always question unsolicited requests for your personal or financial information in case
itís a scam. Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text.
Every Report Matters. If you have been a victim of fraud or cyber crime, report it to us online or by calling 0300 123 2040.
Visit Take Five and Cyber Aware for more information about how to protect yourself online.
There is video on Youtube which shows useful information on how to avoid being caught out by phishing attacks.
