North Wales Police warn public about new cyber scam | #phishing | #scams


North Wales Police have warned the public about a new cyber scam that is going around at the moment.

A number of scams were identified in the build up to Christmas and the Police have drawn attention to another one that is currently doing the rounds.

On their Community Alert page, North Wales Police said: “Unfortunately scam messages are on the increase. The latest one to come to our attention is a fake e-mail purporting to be from Asda claiming that you will get a £90 promo reward if you complete a survey.

“The link leads to a website that is designed to steal your personal information and possibly your money.

“Please make sure that your friends, family and neighbours are aware that this is a scam.

“Also remember if you receive a suspicious email to forward it to the National Cyber Security Centre: report@phishing.gov.uk

“As of the 30th November 2021 the number of reports to them stood at more than 8,700,000 which has resulted in the removal of more than 68,000 scams across 127,000 websites.”
