Bottesford NHW Alert: Email Warning

There is a new email scam hit the village. Emails with the subject "Private Message" arrive apparently from someone you know. You open it to find it's just a link to an internet page, except it can't display anything because it says you made a mistake keying the site.
One such message that came to a resident's Gmail account wanted the email password before continuing. That alerted the recipient to a possible scam or malware and telephone contact with the sender confirmed this.
If you receive such a message you are advised NOT TO OPEN IT and to DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY
