It has come to our attention that a phishing scam email has been sent out to members of the public using an email address that ends coventrymind.org.uk

We have not used this as an email address for six years and the names at the start of the email do not relate to anyone in the organisation.

As these are scam emails DO NOT open any links within the email and delete the email immediately.

Just to confirm we are unaware as to how the scammers have managed to obtain the names and addresses of recipients of these emails.

We can only apologise if this has caused you distress and confirm that it has no connection to Coventry & Warwickshire Mind.

This is part of a wider scam being operated nationally.  More information can is available on BBC Radio 4:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-35977227
