Royal Scams

It's great news that the William and Kate have had a royal baby boy!

However, as with most high profile news stories, you need to be very cautious of scammers and fraudsters using the good news as a means for distributing malware and committing fraud.  

Remember if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is! 

If someone's sending you a link to a picture or something else then you need to keep a few things in mind:

1. Just because a link or email has come from a trusted friend, doesn't mean to say that its a safe email. Their account might have been hacked. 

2. If it's legitimate and nothing bad or malicious then it should be available elsewhere on the net - places like the BBC website keep up to date with all the news and gossip - try looking there 

3. Always be careful opening attachments.
