An urgent warning has been issued to viewers of the popular ITV1 daytime show This Morning over the rise in online scams.
Vanessa Feltz who is a frequent guest on the show appeared in the studio on May 25, opposite the well-known presenter duo Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
Feltz normally appears on This Morning to offer words of advice and wisdom and this episode was no different, with the guest urging viewers to exercise caution towards online scams.
Scam texts, calls and emails have once again been circulating, striking concern into individual’s up and down the country, according to Birmingham Live.
Feltz was advising viewers to remain vigilant and not panic.
She said: “We must remember all the police sergeants I’ve ever talked to about this say nothing is ever that urgent.
“So you get a message you’re not expecting saying, ‘you’ve got to urgently contact this, you’ve got to quickly join this link’ or whatever it is.
“Nothing is that urgent. If something is really important you will be contacted in the normal, legitimate manner, but you know when people are dashing about they think, ‘Oh my God, quick!’ Then they’ve done it before they’ve even had a chance to think.
“Nothing is that urgent, that’s the thing to remember.”
This Morning continues to air each and every weekday, from Monday morning to Friday morning, from 10am on ITV1.
