UK SUSPICIOUS EMAIL REPORTING SERVICE HAS RECEIVED OVER A MILLION REPORTS OF SCAM EMAILS

On 25 June, the National Cyber Security Centre advised that, just 2 months after launching the service, it has been notified of over 1 million suspect emails.  Fake cryptocurrency investment lures make up more than half of all online scams detected as a result of reporting from the public.  It says that more than half of the 10,000 online links to scams blocked or taken down by the NCSC with the help of the public relate to cryptocurrency schemes.  The service has been receiving a daily average of 16,500 emails.
