Reporting cybercrime: Why it’s important and how to do it

If you suspect, or know, that you’ve been a victim of cybercrime, the Cyber Resilience Centre for Wales and South Wales Police Cyber Crime Team explain in this video the importance of reporting incidents, as well as cyberattack attempts, to Action Fraud.

Received a suspicious looking text or email? Never click the link or attachment, as it’s likely to be a phishing scam.

Emails can be fowarded to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS):

Forward text messages for free to 7726. If you forward a text to 7726, your provider can investigate the origin of the text and arrange to block or ban the sender, if it’s found to be malicious.
