NORTH Wales residents are being warned about scam emails claiming to be from BT.

Action Fraud has received 676 reports in two weeks relating to fake emails purporting to be from the company.

The emails commonly use the subject line 'Your bill is ready' and provide a link that can be used to make a payment.

The link leads to genuine-looking phishing websites that are designed to steal BT login credentials, as well as personal and financial information.

North Wales Police are keen to ensure that residents are aware of the emails.
