We use the information you provide to check if the email may be a scam using common scam techniques.
Although we may highlight that an email may be genuine, you should always use your best judgement and we make no guarantee that the information we provide back is 100% correct.
If you are ever unsure, do not click on any links or download any attachments within the email.
You should also not provide any payment details or give the sender access to any of your account passwords.
