BTInternet 'Expiration' Email Asks for 'Customer Informations'
The message warns that your account will be disabled if you do not update your details as instructed.
Email is a Phishing Scam
The attached file contains a form that asks for a large amount of information, including your account login details, your name and contact data, and your credit card and bank account numbers. Opening the attachment loads the form in your web browser.
Clicking the 'Submit' button on the bogus form sends all of the information to criminals who can then use it to commit financial fraud and identity theft.
Be Wary of Emails That Ask for Personal Information
Any email that asks you to open an attached file or click a link to supply personal and financial information should be treated as suspicious.
It is always safest to login to your online accounts by entering the address in your browser's address bar or via an official account app.
