We’ve had two of our customers ask us about very worrying emails sent to them over the past 2 days. Our clients have been sent their own passwords by email, in an attempt to trick them into believing the scammers actually do have access to their computer/internet history. The emails are incredibly scary, and for many they seem very legit. Action Fraud who have issued an official warning about this specific email, believe that these passwords may have been gained from an old data breach (oh joy!).
Action Fraud have issued a warning about these emails, and we urge all of our clients to read this warning (click here) if you have also received emails along this vein.
