BT customers in Gedling borough are being targeted by scam emails in the wake of the WannaCry ransomware attack. 

Fraudsters are using the attack as a hook to try and get people to click on the links within this clever BT branded phishing email.

This very convincing email claims BT is updating its systems to protect its customers from such attacks.

It asks them to confirm a security upgrade that gives it “temporarily limited access to profile features that contain sensitive data”.

SCAM: The fake email which claims to be from BT

 

A spokesman for scam-busters Action Fraud said: “After analysing the email, the domains appear very similar and this could easily catch out those who are concerned about the security of their data after the global attack.

“If you receive one of these emails do not click on any links and follow our advice on how to stay safe. Instead, go to the BT website directly and log in from there.

“We are also aware that companies are sending out legitimate emails of reassurance in connection with the recent cyber attack, if in doubt contact them directly on a method other than the email you have received. ”

They added: “Remember that fraudsters can “spoof” an email address to make it look like one used by someone you trust. If you are unsure, check the email header to identify the true source of any such communication.
