Warning - NEST scam emails

15 February 2017

 

Be aware that fraudsters are sending emails purporting to be from NEST saying that an amount (in excess of normal contributions) will be debited from the recipients account.

 

A comment on Accounting Web’s Any Answers has warned people about the phishing email sent out recently which claims to be from NEST. Apparently the email is an impressive fake with all the formatting and wording identical to a genuine message. One of the signs of a scam email is incorrect grammar and typos and this email apparently contained no errors.

 

The piece notes that NEST has confirmed that the messages are not genuine and should not be opened.

 

NEST’s Twitter timeline also confirms this and contains other reports of people receiving these emails.
