Please be aware, that you might receive e-mails in the name of the British Council attempting to phish for data. You should immediately delete these e-mails and not answer them. British Council will only contact you from either the e-mail address or from the e-mail addresses of our colleagues containing their names. British Council will not request login data or password form you in e-mail.

The following characteristics might help you recognise a phising e-mail:

  • requesting password
  • addresses a general person not you in specific
  • some data might be missing, the e-mail is visibly incomplete
  • contains links to suspicious websites
  • did not originate from or one of our colleague’s own e-mail address.
