It’s an old phishing scam from 2017 but I have just received one from supposedly so this one is doing the rounds again - be aware and don’t click on the link!

Hover over the link and it tells you and the sender is “contact”.


Thanks for the warning - I check our post box daily hoping to find my shiny new CV - but still many months on and no sight of it.

I have had letters about it, sent off additional ID just waiting to be asked to provide photo but it has been 2 months since last communication so I would have been tempted to click on link in email without this warning.
