The National Cyber Security Centre warns about potential scams during the period of national mourning.

During this period following the death of Her Majesty the Queen, including her Lying-in-State and State Funeral, there may be an increase in phishing emails and other scams.

Please find the full details via the NCSC Website.

‘Phishing’ is when criminals use scam emails, text messages or phone calls to trick their victims. The aim is often to make you visit a website, which may download a virus onto your computer, or steal bank details or other personal information.

By forwarding suspicious emails to report@phishing.gov.uk you help to protect yourself and others from cyber crime.
