The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) issued an urgent warning at the beginning of the month after identifying a growing amount of frauds involving coronavirus.
There have continued to be an increasing amount of both email and telephone scams during the current crisis exploiting feelings of uncertainty. Please be extra vigilant when receiving incoming emails and receiving calls that may seem unusual.
The current advice is not to click on links or attachments in suspicious emails and never respond to unsolicited calls and messages that request personal or financial details.
Reports of cyber-crime can be reported via Action Fraud.
