BE AWARE of fake text messages purporting to be from the UK government. The texts state that the recipient is “owed” or “eligible” for an energy bill discount as part of the Energy Bill Support Scheme. The links in the emails lead to genuine-looking websites that are designed to steal your personal and financial information.
You do not need to apply for the 'Energy Bill Discount' scheme that gives you £400 off energy bills for households in Great Britain from October 2022, it is done automatically. You will not be asked for your bank details.
