Fraud aware: New Infection Control email scam

NHS staff have received an email, purporting to have been issued by the Infection Control team but originating from an email address outside of their organisation, advising of the roll out of a Communicable Disease Management Policy as a result of Covid-19.

Actions Required

  1. Do not click on the link within the email, and do not enter any personal information.
  2. Report the email as per your organisation’s guidance, and delete it.
  3. Where emails purport to have been issued from within your organisation or include links, hover your mouse over the source email address or the link to view the originating email address and actual file path to verify they are genuine.
