Scam alert: Phishing attempt targeting BT email customers

Hi Everyone,

The good folks over in BT Security have found another scam which we would like to let you know about.

This time the scammer sends an email stating that 'Your email account is reaching its quota and if you click on the link in the email you can upgrade your account for free'.

If you have received an email similar to this please do not click on the link, this is a scam.  If you did click on the link I would recommend you do the following,

 

  • Forward the email to phishing@bt.com then delete it
  • If a suspicious link was clicked or attachment opened/downloaded then run a virus check on your computer
  • If bank details were given out then contact your bank immediately and change your online banking passwords

 

Below is an example of the wording used in this scam,
