Urging Britons to take care and remain vigilant, Mr Costain added: “Be really wary about who you give your information to online and even just innocuous competition where you give away your name, address, phone number and date of birth, could lead you to be targeted in a couple of days’ time.

“Don’t be your own worst enemy.”
