  6. Action Fraud has received a surge in calls and reports from concerned members of the public who have received debt collection and council tax [problem] emails. Outstanding debt In the past couple of days the Action Fraud contact centre has received thousands of calls and reports from the public who have received this clever spear phishing email below. These have worried recipients because they use detailed personal information such as full name, address and postcode. The emails claim to act on behalf of a legitimate company called Optex (Europe) Ltd and contain a link which could infect your computer with Cryptolocker or Maktub ransomware. This spear phishing campaign could constantly evolve, so look out for company variations and remember that is easy for fraudsters to adapt information. To prevent your personal information ending up in the hands of fraudsters; follow our advice on how to protect it. Your council tax bill This email has been spammed out over the past couple of weeks and could catch residents off guard. It uses a realistic domain name and claims there is a new service up and running to make it easier for you to pay your council tax bill online. If you are in doubt about any service your council provides, contact them directly. http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/news/alert-fake-debt-collection-and-council-tax-emails-apr16
  7. I got an email just over a week ago from '[email protected]' informing me that my email address is "currently registered against an active UJ account" "It's been a year since you accessed the account and used it to search for jobs. If you would like to keep this account please take a moment to log in. If you do nothing the account will be disabled within 4 weeks". It has actually been over 2 years since I accessed my UJ account but I do use it for job searches without logging in to it, so they got that part of it wrong. At the bottom it says: "UJ helpdesk, Do not reply to this email unless you are directed to do so as we will not be able to respond. Please use the 'Contact us' facility if you have any further issues or to report this email as suspicious. We will never ask you for your password in an email". ©2013 Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) I have been to the Jobcentre to sign on since receiving this email and not a peep was said about it. I do not intend to take a moment to log in, or to contact them. I intend to do nothing about it and they are more than welcome to disable it, and the sooner the better. Just wondered if anyone else received such good news, or is this some sort of a cunning plan.
  8. Netflix have confirmed that an email I received from secure @ netflix.co.uk asking for updated billing details is not from them. Luckily I don't have a Netflix account so it was pretty obvious to me, but perhaps not to everyone.
  9. Hi all, Would appreciate a bit of help if possible. I signed up to their Act Now Alerts service and was not "alerted" when I exceeded my limit. I've been trying to point this out to them for over a year now and during which time they've continually applied defaults to my account (FOS were useless as they said that fees were applied in line with T&C and didn't address the non-notification). The case seems to be being passed around the entire Consumer Care Team with no acknowledgement of fault. Any advice please? Does anyone have a contact address for a master and commander? Thanks in advance
  10. Hello All, Has anyone had dealings with the above Ins Co, they apparently sell "Life Assistance Products" and in Particular Identity Protection,Fraud Protection Services, in relation to plastic cards, mobile phones and Identities. CPP Identity Alert is arranged by Card Protection Plan Ltd and underwritten by Homecare Insurance Ltd. There is an Identity Protection Policy issued with this product and a yearly fee of circa £80 ish. Also included is a premium of circa £16 to the Company, CPP for it's intermediary services. The fee is the difference between the premium and the total amount you pay in the United Kingdom, where Insurance Premium Tax is Payable, this is included in the fee and the premium. My question is, will this company and the products it sells be subject to the same procedures, rules and regs etc, as the PPI./LPI claims for mis-selling?? This has just come to my attention from a family friend who has just received the renewal notice and thinks maybe there could be mis-selling. All advice/ information will as usual be gratefully received. "EXEMPLO DUCEMUS"
  11. Hi all, Just signed up and will hopefully be learning from and sharing knowledge with a lot of you. I posted this on the main forum and someone suggesting reposting in the relevant section/ I am mainly interested in finance and banking (with an interest, but no qualifications, in financial law, mainly picked up from forums whilst dealing with my own financial nightmare) Over the last 6 years I've had some really strange experiences, mainly with my bank and other finance companies I owed money to. I've managed to resolve them, one way or another and think i may have picked up some knowledge worth sharing when it comes to dealing with complaining to finance companies/banks. Experienced some problems with high interest debt and identity fraud but have now nearly come out the other side (once I've paid off my last £1800 of credit card debt) Looking forward to speaking to you all!
  12. This is a very important medical alert. Please pass it on to your friends and family. THIS IS SERIOUS!!
