Further ways of reporting scams:
Smishing: If you have received a suspicious text message you can forward it from your phone free of charge by sending it to 7726. This enables your provider to identify the origin of the text and take action.
If you’ve been a victim of a smishing fraud, then you also need to report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040, or by using their online form.
Phishing: If you have received a suspicious email that you’re not quite sure about, forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS) firstname.lastname@example.org . It will go to the National Cyber Security Centre who will analyse the suspect email and any websites it links to and use any additional information you’ve provided to look for and monitor suspicious activity.
If you think you may have been a victim of fraud as a result of phishing you should also report this to Action Fraud.
