Warning re phishing 'scam' emails claiming to be from English UK

We are aware that over the past week some members have received phishing 'scam' emails claiming to be from English UK. Some of these have included a request to pay a fake invoice also claiming to be from English UK.

We encourage members to check the sender's domain name and exercise extreme caution if the email originates from email servers such as accountant.com, which are commonly used for phishing scams. 

We also suggest members work with their IT suppliers to ensure they have sufficient protections to filter emails coming from certain servers. If you are unsure whether a payment request or invoice relating to your membership is genuine you always can contact Nuria to double check. 

If you have received an email which you're not quite sure about, you can forward it to report@phishing.gov.uk.

Advice from the National Cyber Security Centre

The National Cyber Security Centre (NSCS) has advised organisations to bolster their online defences and improve their resilience during the current heightened cyber threat following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
