to start exploiting the CORVD-19 crisis, and there are numerous fraudulent schemes underway.

A particularly nasty one landed in my inbox this morning. Purporting to come from the NHS, it asks that you send £10 to help towards the cost of properly equipping our NHS heroes, and provides details of a Barclays bank account to which you can send the money.

Time to be extra vigilant, I think.
