BT scam

Kathleen, an AudlemOnline reader, has alerted us to a new scam (or an old scam in a new disguise)

The scam screen appears as shown.

It looks like an official, and not unreasonable, screen from BT, and it is designed to get you to send personal information, particularly your payment details.

Which? report

The following comments are taken from Which?, and the full article can be read here.

Much like the other phishing scams we've seen lately, clicking through will take you to a fake website where you'll be instructed to enter sensitive information, almost certainly including your payment details.

This isn't the first time scammers have attempted this, with other efforts being reported on BT's community forums earlier this year. However, this is the first we've spotted with the updated branding.

Our advice on dealing with phishing scams remains the same; check for the telltale signs, such as spelling errors and suspicious-looking email domains.
