Beware this BT email scam and similar tricks

I don’t normally single out email scams but using this one to show how the quality of the scams have improved.

To all intents and purposes this looks like a regular billing email from BT, albeit with an inflated figure, designed to ‘alarm’ you into clicking on it.

But let’s pause and have a closer look.


Put your mouse on that See your bill link in the email and you will see something like this…


Not what you’d expect. This link doesn’t take you to BT but to an unknown server in Slovakia (indicated by the .sk in the part of the address).

What makes this one even more convincing is that the other links in the email will take you to BT pages.

Be careful out there folks!
