    Some really make ways just to earn quick.

    Around 471 stores have been taken down by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) over the past month, this along with thousands of other online scams.

    These scams have been taking advantage of the fear being caused by the pandemic, as they try to scam people into buying safety equipment.

    As Minister for Security, James Brokenshire:


    With this, the NCSC has launched a Suspicious Email Reporting Service. To take part, you may forward suspicious emails to (Email Hidden for Privacy) , which then a programme will test it for red flags.

    Despite all this, it is still better to be aware of the emails you receive. Most in this community have been aware of this, but to be sure, always check the sender of the email whether you are familiar of the address or otherwise. Also, do not believe those emails that will send you money for a small payment.
