How to protect yourself from scam emails and texts

Received an email or text that seems suspicious? Report it. Your reports enable Action Fraud to remove the emails and websites criminals use to commit fraud and cyber crime.

1: Forward suspicious emails to [email protected] . Send emails to this address that feel suspicious, even if you're not certain they're a scam - they can check.

2: Forward suspicious text messages to 7726 (it’s free of charge). Your provider can find out where the text came from and block or ban the sender.

3 - If you’ve lost money or provided personal information as a result of a phishing scam, notify your bank immediately and report it to Action Fraud at or by calling 0300 123 2040.
