The Charity Commission issued an alert on Tuesday warning the public of the con, which involves fake emails sent by fraudsters posing as genuine charity, the Migrant Helpline.

The emails, sent to individuals and businesses, promise that funds will enable the charity to “continue to work in Syria and neighbouring countries to deliver clean water and life-saving supplies to millions of people”.

But once recipients click on the email, malicious software is automatically downloaded onto their device.

The malware is then able to record the user’s personal information and banking details.
