WARNING SCAM PIP APPEALS EMAILS WARNING 3 months 3 weeks ago #262502

I AM GETTING BOMBARDED BY EMAILS FROM AN EMAIL ADDRESS CLAIMING TO BE FROM FROM PIP APPEALS. I HAVE NOT MADE ANY APPEAL, THEY HAVE AN APPEAL NUMBER & EVEN MY NAME
I REPLIED & THEY ASKED FOR MY PERSONAL DETAILS INCLUDING ADDRESS & NATIONAL INSURANCE NUMBER. PLEASE WARN PEOPLE ABOUT THIS.

I SUFFER EXTREME ANXIETY & DEPRESSION & THIS WILL SEND MR OVER THE EDGE - HOW HAVE THE GOVERNMENT ALLOWED HACKERS TO GAIN ACCESS TO MY NAME & EMAIL. I WILL BE TAKING LEGAL ACTION. UNFORGIVABLE..

HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THESE EMAILS???

Hi DC

Thanks for this. No I haven't heard about this - I don't know whether anyone else has.

I'll stick your post so it appears at the top of the forum.

DC try not to panic easy said than done I know, but do NOT give any NI numbers or any further personal information for that matter, if you haven't put in an appeal just ignore it and get the DWP to look into what this is doing to you, or even get the Police involved.

That's why I never divulge any phone numbers or emails to this department DWP.
I was formely known as (GoingOffMyHeadWithThisGovernment) Won PIP November 2017 ongoing award HR both. Now kept and got my ESA Support group but took a while.

Hi DC

If you receive an email that you believe is a scam email then forward it on to :

report@phishing.gov.uk

If you get a text message scam on your phone forward the text on to 7726, make a note of the contact number as you will receive a reply to your text asking for the telephone number.

I always head both messages scam messages
