Recently, there have been several fraudulent, phishing and other suspicious communications sent by unofficial organisations and individuals. Fraudulent scams are usually received via SMS or email or can be found on social media.

 

If you wish to research if an email is legitimate, it may be worthwhile contacting the organisation who appears to have sent it. It’s best to find their contact details via their official website. When finding their contact details, never trust contact details or click links on suspicious emails.
