Another thing to be careful of are unsafe emails.

Often referred to as ‘phishing’, some emails are sent by scammers to try and trick you into sharing your details or clicking onto an unsafe link.

Such links can also be sent via message on social networks.

In the same way you must be careful of pop-up windows with unsafe links, you should be careful of messages/emails from people you don’t know.

If you receive one of these emails or messages, you can report the scam email to an organisation called ActionFraud that can help to uncover these scammers.
