This has been on a recent episode of BBCs Rip Off Britain ( https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bml15y <this episode for anyone who wants to watch while it is still up) in an episode with plenty of info on current bank scams. They also suggested checking this site https://haveibeenpwned.com/ which will let you know if your email address is known to be subject to a data breach anywhere. It's always best to be aware of these scams, so thanks to @alicantesteve for that.

My email came up on the  have I been pawned website . But does this mean I should abandon my email account and create another one? I have changed my Passwords on every site I can think of. Thing is I have no idea where my email was pawned. Ive never been notified of a data breach anywhere.

My main one has been Pwned but I still use it all the time without concern and the spam filter on my email account does fine.I have others that have not been Pwned.

 

If you want some good spare ones I use GMX,

You can also have several Alias addresses with GMX Smiley Happy
