NHSmail support teams have identified a series of spam emails containing phishing website links being sent to users. An account with a nhs.net address is claiming to be from an IT Support Team and is asking users to verify their account by providing their credentials and password. This is not from the NHSmail support team.
This account has now been deactivated but certain user’s may have received an email with a provided link.
NHSmail users should never click on any provided link to verify their accounts. Whilst measures are taken to prevent spam and phishing emails from being delivered to NHSmail users, we would ask that all users remain vigilant to spam and phishing emails and report any suspicious URL and emails to email@example.com.
Further information and guidance with regards reporting spam or phishing emails can be found in the Cyber Security Guide.
