This came through the Neighbourhood watch email alerts and I thought others may find it useful. I get loads of dodgy requests through my work email so I tried it out and was impressed !
If the link in the email is hidden behind some text such as “Click Here” you can <right click> on the link and then Copy the link before pasting into the check box on the site.
|Dear Resident, |
Get Safe Online has partnered with Cifas, the UK’s leading fraud prevention service, to launch ‘Check a Website’.
‘Check a Website’ is a new, easy-to-use online tool which helps determine whether a website is likely to be legitimate or a scam … before you visit it. It is hoped to prevent thousands of people in the UK falling victim to unwanted online scams every year.
To use, simply type in the address of the website you want to check, and your results will appear within seconds. To try it out simply visit www.getsafeonline.org/checkawebsite/
Secondly, for parents and grandparents, you may be interested in this month’s online safety awareness campaign – Switched-on Parent. The attached new leaflet provides lots of tips from our experts on how to encourage your children or grandchildren to use the Internet safely.
With best wishes,
The Get Safe Online team
