More Online Scams

Thieves are always looking at ways of conning you out of money or your identity. You may be familiar with scams purporting to come from HMRC, banks and utility companies. The latest scam is to claim that you've beens summoned to appear in court.

Fraudsters are sending out a wave of scam emails purporting to be from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) that claim you have to appear in court.

Concerned members of the public have reported receiving the email entitled 'You've been witness summoned to court'. The email entices people to click on a link to view their start time/case details.

This link is likely to lead to malware. This email has no connection to the CPS and anyone receiving the email should not download any attachments or click on any links.

Make a scam/rogue trader complaint to Trading Standards via Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 040506.
