You may have received an email with the subject: ‘firstname.lastname@example.org shared files via WeTransfer’ containing a link prompting you to enter some log in credentials.
If you did enter any credentials when prompted, then we would suggest that you change your email account password and raise it with the relevant support or provider as they may have further advice on appropriate actions.
We also suggest you consider undertaking the following protective steps to potentially mitigate the risk of fraud:
- If you receive an unsolicited email, letter, text or phone call asking for personal information, never reveal any full passwords, login details or account numbers until you are certain of the identity of the person making the request.
- Please do not click on any links or download any files that you do not recognise.
- If you think you have been a victim of fraud you should report it to Action Fraud, the UK’s national fraud and internet crime reporting centre, on 0300 123 2040.
However, should you wish to discuss further or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Practice Manager, Shani Kamalia.
