There has been an attempt to impersonate members of the Parish Council via a spam email.
If you are in receipt of an email from the Parish Council, please check the senders address to ensure it is truly who it says it is from.
The email address that the recent spam email came from is ””firstname.lastname@example.org””
The content of the email was as follows:
“Could you pls spare a minute to assist me in completing a task discreetly.
Would be glad to receive your response through email because I'm presently in a meeting
If replied to the spammer will then continue to ask you to:
“I'm so tied up right now, can you purchase an iTunes Voucher gift card 2 pieces -£100 each at any near by store?
I would reimburse you when am through later today. I would have preferred to call you but can't receive or call at the moment with my line
Let me know if you can purchase them now. Thanks and I'll be awaiting ASAP
Please note that Wawne Parish Council would NEVER ask you to do the above. In addition the Parish Council would only ever email from the official Wawne Parish Council email addresses when referring to Wawne Parish Council business.
