Nasty Email Scam

Cyber Crime 02

Haddenham Medical Centre has received notification of a particularly nasty email scam that is currently live on the internet. Staff are concerned to forewarn patients so that they are not taken in and distressed by this cruel communication.

According to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), this evil email hoax has been sent to several thousand people.

The email claims to be from NICE and tells people that their recent test results indicate they may have cancer. NICE would have no involvement in communicating any medical results to individuals, and the whole thing is an incredibly unpleasant scam.

Needless to say, the best place for such a nasty communication is dumped directly into your trash basket.
