British Gas Hacked

British Gas Hacked

No bank account or payment card details have been revealed (thankfully), but the logins (usernames/emails/password) could have been used to view users’ names, addresses and past energy bills.

2,200 accounts it seems have been compromised (at the moment) of the 14.7 million customers and British Gas have notified affected customers

The problem with these data breaches is those details could be used to gain access to other websites or used to send emails/letters pretending to be other companies trying to scam you.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
