Action Fraud has issued an urgent scam warning after hundreds of people were targeted by fraudsters.

The anti-scam organisation received 752 reports in just four days relating to fake emails purporting to be from Ofgem.

West Yorkshire Police urged people to look for the warning signs and shared a picture of the email in question.

The scam emails state that the recipient is eligible for a rebate as a result of a newly announced government scheme with Ofgem.

The links in the emails lead to genuine-looking websites designed to steal your personal and financial information.

How to spot a text or email scam

If you need to check whether you've been sent a genuine message, contact the company using details from their official website or app.

If you think you've spotted a suspicious email, you can forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS) via
