Phishing email warning

The Counter Fraud Team are aware of a significant number of occasions at Trusts whereby fraudsters are tricking staff into handing over passwords so that the fraudsters can then change staff bank details. This has led to one employee of a Trust losing over £10,000 when their pay was diverted to a fraudsters bank account. This is then almost impossible to recover. 

Please do not be tricked into handing over passwords or other personal details. If somebody asks for anything personal think who are they and why do they need it. Check to see if there is a reason for them to have access. 

Your personal data is very important. Please always take 5 seconds to think “ Is this genuine? Why would somebody need this?” 

If you require any further details please contact your Local Counter Fraud Specialist, Simon Stanyer on T: 07747 565380 or E: simon.stanyer@kpmg.co.uk
