Customers warned to be vigilant
27 July 2017
We are asking customers to remain vigilant following reports of a suspected fake email scam.
Our officers say some customers have received an email purporting to be from us, which requests payment for outstanding invoices.
The spoof emails also have an attachment that could potentially be malware, something which should not be opened.
The number of people who have been sent the fake email is not clear, although we have received four reports about the suspected scam.
Our spokesperson, said: “Customers are advised not to respond to the email or open any attachments.
“If customers receive any suspicious emails purporting to be from SLDC which request payment for outstanding invoices, they should be reported as phishing emails to Action Fraud.”
