Tesco Phishing Email

A tempting one - but a phishing scam.

You could check this out by:

- Avoiding clicking the link and log on via a browser to check your account (if you really are entitled to the offer, you will no doubt see it there)

- Notice the penalty for not acting promptly, a typical email phishing scam technique 

The"unsubscribe" link looks bona fide but will land you in big trouble if you click on it. If the email looks suspicious, the unsubscribe link can't be trusted either.

Best thing to do with this is ignore it and then alert your IT security people so that they can let the rest of your colleagues know that there is a new phishing email around that will undoubtedly faciltate a cyber attck if any of the links are cliecked on. (No doubt the brand that's being hijacked by this phsihing email might be interested too.
