Officials are warning people to be vigilant over scam emails from Temu.

Action Fraud, the UK’s national reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime, has seen a rise in phishing reports related to online shopping scams.

They have received 30,000 reports in the last six weeks relating to fake emails purporting to be from Temu, an e-commerce marketplace.

The emails claim that the recipient can win free products by completing a quick survey.

The links in the email lead to malicious websites designed to steal personal and financial information.

A spokesperson for Action Fraud said: “If you have doubts about a message, contact the organisation directly.

“Don’t use the numbers or address in the message – use the details from their official website.

“Your bank (or any other official source) will never ask you to supply personal information via email.”

If anyone spots a suspicious email they should forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service at
