5 AUGUST 2020

It has come to our attention that a third-party supplier to Balmoral has had its IT system hacked. As a result potentially thousands of fake emails have been issued purporting to be from our Purchasing department, they are not.

The email will appear genuine but will have originated from a Hotmail, or other, generic account. Please check the details of any emails received from Balmoral and ensure the sender’s address ends in ‘’.

Do not, under any circumstances, open attachments sent with the fake email as they may severely compromise your systems. Please delete the email if received and, if you have any doubts, contact your company’s IT dept for clarification.

We have been made aware of this incident and must stress that our system has not been compromised. We apologise for any inconvenience but, unfortunately, this is not something within our control.

All relevant authorities have been informed.
