Trading Standards warning over scam e-mails in Denbighshire
Trading Standards officers in Denbighshire are warning residents and businesses to be on their guard against scam emails requesting payment of an invoice.
The warning comes after reports of businesses receiving a link to an invoice from emails that may appear genuine but do not come from a genuine Denbighshire County Council email address.
Emlyn Jones, Denbighshire’s Public Protection Manager, said: “This appears to be a national scam or at least a variation on similar events reported nationally.Our advice is to ignore the email and do not click on any links in any emails you do not know the origin of or are not expecting.
“All invoices are generated and issued by post through our preferred supplier.Any copy invoices requested are sent as pdf attachments, are clearly visible in the email and do not appear as links.”
Anyone who thinks they have been scammed, or knows someone who has fallen victim to a scam, can contact Trading Standards on 03454 04 05 06, for the Welsh language or 03454 04 05 05, or report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or www.actionfraud.police.uk
