Fraud Attempt on Secure Mail

September 17, 2019

There are several reports of school staff receiving phishing emails which on first look seems to be from the head teacher of their school but when hovering over the email address it is clear that it is not from the head teacher’s email account. Please be vigilant and ensure your school staff are aware of these type of emails and wary of any emails asking for payment or bank details.  

 

If you are a victim of this type of email threat please report it to your IT support and also https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report-phishing

 

An example of a phishing email can be found below.
