Watch out for dodgy emails

Be careful with emails like this one  – they look so genuine on first glance. But it is highly likely the zip file attachment contains a virus.

Always be very careful with emails from unknown sources. Whilst they look genuine, they can cause a whole heap of pain for you.

Most emails of these types get caught by Spam filters (if your email system has them) – but some get through. The one in above made it through to my Junk box, and whilst the lure of a £900 tax rebate is appealing it is simply a hoax.

Top tips for avoiding these.

Do NOT click on any attachments – unless you are absolutely sure of the sender, and what the attachment is

Do not trust the apparently genuine sender address – if you take a look at this HMRC page you will see there are many email addresses these hackers use, all of which appear to be the real deal, but are in fact spoofs.
