OFGEM scam emails

Action Fraud has received 752 reports in four days relating to fake emails purporting to be from Ofgem.

The emails state that the recipient is eligible for a rebate as a result of a newly announced government scheme. The links in the emails lead to genuine-looking websites that are designed to steal your personal and financial information.

Please view our tweet to see a screenshot of the fake emails reported to Action Fraud:
