Householders are being warned about a spate of fake emails from someone claiming to be from BT.
Trading Standards officers have had reports from residents who have received emails from fraudsters notifying them their account has been suspended.
They have urged people to be wary, and to not click on the link in the emails.
A post on the Suffolk Trading Standards’ Facebook page said: “Beware of these fake BT emails.
“The message informs the recipient that their account has been suspended and payment declined.
“The link goes to a fake BT log in page.
“If you receive the email do not click on the link.”
