The links in the email lead to genuine looking websites that are designed to steal personal and financial information.

Roger Mapleson, Trading Standards and Licensing Lead said, “With the cost of living rises more and more people are finding it difficult to manage and will be very tempted by this kind of offer. Always be on your guard, please don’t follow any links and report it immediately to report@phishing.gov.uk. Your reports will help to remove scams and malicious websites.

“If you are in doubt contact the company themselves using their official website.”
