Possible Scam Email

Just had an email with an official looking Tesco page that said I was a potential winner of a Samsung Galaxy S9. Moused over the link provided and it had nothing to do with Tesco. I only say it's a possible scam because it could be some sort of promotional thing, but I never click on anything I'm unsure of, nor should anyone for that matter. Just thought it might be a good idea to give everyone a heads up in case they receive a similar email.

@BambinoThanks for letting us know. I haven't had that sort of email, if I do I will just delete it. Smiley Wink

Fraudsters will always find way of parting you from your money unless you are ultra vigilant. Don't know if this helps?

Thanks for that @jonsie. So instead of deleting as I said earlier, I will sent it to the phishing site in that link.

I can't actually access that link, but mails like that should also be sent to the Action Fraud site. https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/
