SCAM/SPAM dangerous email pretending to be from Plusnet.
If this is not the correct Forum to post on please let me know and redirect this post, thank you.
I received a convincing email allegedly from Plusnet this afternoon. In reality it is from (I have put the XXX in the middle of the email address in case anyone clicks on it by mistake.)
Plusnet [Update-97F] <[email protected]>
I was concerned when the link took me to a page where personal information was required (information Plusnet already had) including my banking details and Plusnet password.
I started to complete the form until it came to banking details and I stopped to telephone Plusnet. They are aware of this scam/spam email and the person I spoke to is reporting it to his manager.
The Plusnet Representative advised me to hovver on the sender's email address and this is where I saw that it was not from Plusnet at all.
It is quite worrying because I almost fell for it. I filled in some information but did not click to send the incomplete form - although I did not send it, I had clicked on the link and had entered my Plusnet email, telephone number and password - that request (the password) should have been a warning but it was when I was being asked to enter my banking details that I stopped.
Should I be worried at all?
