scammers?

On 7 September I was phoned by foreigners, claiming they were from Microsoft and that I'd been scammed. On my computer they showed me a post from TalkTalk, my phone and internet provider. I took them to be the scammers and ended the conversation. I have informed Microsoft. On the same date I received six emails from TalkTalk re changing password, security, and security for children. How do I know if these are bona fide TalkTalk messages or further approaches from the scammers? Should I open the emails?

Many thanks.

Do you use TalkTalk webmail? If so I believe a genuine email from TalkTalk will show a yellow padlock symbol just in front of the senders address. I am sure @Gondola will confirm that shortly.

Eureka! Pipex mailboxes have migrated!

Hi Nev, all those mails will be scams. Don't open any of them. Just delete them. The clue is that the sending email won't be a genuine one.
