Due to the high number of scam emails being sent by unauthorized third parties to the public fraudulently claiming to be running promotions. Examples include unsolicited emails claiming that recipients are due to receive charity donations, lottery winnings or offers of employment. We confirm that none of these emails are official and as such we do not accept any association with or liability arising from or relating to these emails. We therefore request that recipients of these emails refrain from responding to such emails and/or from providing their personal data.
