Warning issued as scam emails pretending to be from Companies House target Hampshire businesses
A SCAM email has been sent to businesses in Hampshire.
Hampshire County Council has warned that it has received reports of businesses receiving emails allegedly from Companies House, stating that a company complaint has been submitted.
Helen Woods, business support officer, said: “These emails can look very genuine and some unscrupulous organisations can mask email addresses so that they look like a genuine email address in the ‘from’ address.
“Please be aware that Companies House will never ask you to disclose personal or payment information by email.”
