Alert message sent 06/07/2018 12:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Action Fraud (NFIB)




Watch out for these fake Argos texts offering refunds

These fake text messages purport to be from Argos and claim that you’re owed a refund. The link in the messages lead to phishing websites designed to steal your personal information, as well as payment details.


Always question unsolicited requests for your personal or financial information in case it’s a scam. Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text.
