Lytham St. Anne’s residents, especially the elderly who may not be receiving face-to-face support and advice, are warned not to fall victim to a current wave of on-line scams.  One such unsolicited email message promising financial help courtesy of the UK Government is being sent to many unsuspecting residents.  Whilst seemingly authentic, a simple error in the spelling of relief is a tell-tale sign.  However, there are others circulating with authentic formatting which ask for bank details, PINs etc so that money may be paid into accounts.  Beware – and reiterate warnings to already worried older folk.
