Watch out for phishing e-mails



We have just heard from a trainee that he has had an e-mail purporting to be from the Royal Free ICU trainee rota – this is a scam.

 

Please exercise caution when entering you e-mail details into any websites and ensure they are genuine before doing so. if in any doubt, contact the departments directly.  See below:

I wanted to share with you an email that I received pretending to be about the ‘Royal Free Hospital ICU Trainee Rota’.
When you click on ‘display message’, it takes you to a fake google sign-in page. On my phone you don’t see the actual site you are on because it’s done via the mail app and it looks very real. I very nearly typed in my password. Instead I typed in a fake one and it took me to a fake BBC news site with lots of articles on buying Bitcoin. Whoever it is very nearly got my email password.
I don’t know if it was just me targeted, or if they are targeting the whole school. Either way, they obviously did their research into how to gain attention with the email subject line.
