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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com or one of our colleague’s own e-mail address.
