STAYING SAFE ONLINE – YOU ARE THE KEY

NEVER EVER be tempted to open a link in an email supposedly from your bank, even if it has your name or account number on it. Most of the scams I see are via email, because it’s an open system which requires no idenification to operate and even if it did, the scammers can fake it. Here’s an example of a link that has been opened from an email; looks genuine but notice the URL is not barclays.co.uk. Any information you enter is being logged by professional criminals with very little risk of being caught:-
