British Gas warning: Realistic e-mail scam circulating - how to stay safe 1

“Never automatically click on any links they contain. Instead, perform some simple checks for telltale signs that an email might be a scam such as if it includes spelling or grammatical errors, or if it addresses you as ‘customer’ rather than using your proper name.

“If the email is implying a sense of urgency, asking you to act immediately, take a moment to pause and consider your actions.

“If you are unsure about the origin of an unexpected email, contact the organisation on a known phone number or via their official website instead.”

British Gas have released a helpful guide on how to spot a scam email on their official website.
