United Utilities Scotland Email Scam UUSCOTLAND@uuplc.co.uk

This one has just started to appear so be careful! As with earlier scam emails the ‘from’ address is genuine it’s the Word Document attached that is the problem. DO NOT click any attachements no matter who it pupports to be from. If you have an online utility account always log into it direct not through a link in an email.

This particular email reads as follows:

Good Morning,
 
I hope you are well.
 
Please find attached the water services invoice summary for the billing period of 22 September 2015 to 22 October 2015.
 
If you would like any more help, or information, please contact me on 0345 0726077. Our office is open between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday. I will be happy to help you. Alternatively you can email me at uuscotland@uuplc.co.uk.
 
Kind regards
 
Melissa
