Important: Spam emails

spam emails

We are seeing an increasing number of spam emails slip through the spam filtering net into users’ inboxes.

Typically these spam emails come from users you may know and contain a link.

It is very important that you NEVER click on these links, unless you are expecting the email and link.

These links will ask your username and password for your email accounts and if entered the sender will gain access to your account and have access to all your emails.

Please see below examples of some of these emails.
