Please be aware that a fraudulent message has been circulated to EPPF pensioners claiming that some members have won prizes in a competition run by the EPPF.
The EPPF is currently not running any competitions for pensioners or any member group. The Fund will always communicate clearly if there is a competition, we would like you to take part in.
Hackers and cyber scammers are always looking for new opportunities to take advantage of people by sending fraudulent emails and WhatsApp messages. These attempt to trick you into clicking on malicious links or opening attachments, which can reveal your username and password and be used to steal money or sensitive information.
If you receive any suspicious WhatsApp messages, emails, phone calls or SMSes that claim to be from the EPPF, you are advised not to respond to them.
The EPPF will:
- never ask for your username or password to access personal information
- never include email attachments and links that are not useful to you
- never charge money to claim competition prizes, register for a pensioner function, or anything else for that matter
Be on alert when you receive an email with any link or attachments containing any reference to or claiming to be from the Fund - it might be a cyberattack.
Please report these instances to your local police or to the EPPF by emailing our Risk and Compliance department on firstname.lastname@example.org.
