Beware of these scams

EE email scam tricks users into giving away payment details

EE customers have been told to take care concerning any messages they receive from the company following the detection of a dangerous new phishing threat.

Security researchers at Cofense have uncovered a new spear-phishing campaign that spoofs messages from the UK’s largest mobile phone network, to try and steal personal information. 

The emails detected by the Cofense Phishing Center used official EE imagery, luring victims with the subject line “View Bill -Error”. The message within reported there has been an issue with the customer’s payment, urging them to update their details with EE.

Cervical Screening Scam

Public Health England (PHE) has alerted the East Riding CCG  to reports they have received of a possible scam.

It is believed that some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for their cervical screening.

The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.

If you or anyone you know receives a message, please do not respond. These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme and the Action Fraud Line has been contacted.

The Humber, Coast and Vale Cancer Alliance will be monitoring the situation and providing regular updates on their social media channels:
