Unfortunately, fraudsters exploit current issues to defraud people who may already be struggling financially. Here is a warning from Action Fraud regarding fraudulent mortgage offers:
Criminals are using mortgage offers “as low as 2.39%” to lure people into phishing scams. Remember, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Always forward suspicious emails to: email@example.com.
Your reports have resulted in the removal of 235,000 malicious websites as of May 2023.
