Whatever type of message you receive, from whichever Information Provider (message sender), all Alert emails you receive will have common factors, as detailed below using example screenshots.
All Neighbourhood Alert messages are sent from firstname.lastname@example.org
First logo showing on the email – the site you joined:
The first banner showing at the top of the message, whoever it comes from and whatever the subject, will ALWAYS be the banner of the website through which you joined; in the example below this is “In The Know Surrey and Sussex”, but could be the national Our Watch, Neighbourhood Watch Scotland or Neighbourhood Alert sites, or one of the regional sites such as Cumbria Community messaging or Thames Valley Alert.
Genuine alert messages will also include a sign off detailing who has sent the message with an image if that person has uploaded one and also four buttons allowing you to interact with the message in different ways such as rating the message or replying to the message sender.
