Don't get hooked by phishing scams

Phishing is the use of fake emails that claim to be from someone you trust.

They try to trick you into handing over personal information, usually to steal your money or identity.

Phishing emails are designed to look like they are genuine messages from a company, organisation or someone you trust.

Take a look at the IT Services blog to see our top tips for spotting a phishing email.
