received strange emails - scam email?

Answered

 

Hi, I have recently received an email with the subject line:This refund bill number: 0955163833‏.  It appears to be a fake, referencing a different account number to my own.

Has there been other cases of this?

Thanks

Good afternoon JM, and good to see that you are being cautious about these dam things.

 

Yes that's been doing the round of late, but it's as the old saying goes "An oldy but a BADDY".

 

Scam yes, delete it yes, and certainly don't respond to it or click any links in it.

Hi, thanks for the info and advice. Very helpful. :-)

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
