Advice to Schools on Email Scams New
The Shared Internal Audit Service have issued advice to schools on financial email scams.
We have recently been made aware of a scam email claiming to have come from Tesco Credit Card on-line Security Department. The email states that Tesco’s have been unable to process credit card payments, and asks the recipient to update their personal information by clicking on a link called, "planetapoete.com". This is not a valid Tesco site, and is a means of obtaining customer information for fraudulent purposes. Please do not click on this link or share the information requested.
Tesco’s Customer Services team is aware of this email and is asking customers who receive it to forward it to the email address below in order for them to monitor the situation.
Please see the link below for information on preventative measures advised by Tesco:
