Phishing emails that divert your salary
There have been increased instances of fraudsters targeting NHS staff with an email that looks like it’s come from their payroll department. It may tempt you to click a link to view details of a salary increase by logging into your payroll system. However, the link goes to a copycat website and once users enter their details, they’re harvested by criminals who then log into the real payroll site and change your bank details for future salary payments.
Look out for unusual ‘from’ email addresses that aren’t linked to your company, poor spelling and incorrect company branding. You can report them to us by forwarding the email to: email@example.com
