THE firm that runs The Pyramids Centre has warned people not to open emails purporting to be from the company as they are believed to contain a virus.

A number of people received emails claiming to be from BH Live, which operates the centre in Southsea, yesterday.

The message purports to be confirmation of nine tickets for Peter Pan at Bournemouth’s Pavilion Theatre for a total of £145 – despite recipients not booking any tickets. It asks the recipient to open an attached PDF file to print their tickets.

BH Live was inundated with calls about the dodgy emails yesterday.

A spokesman said: ‘BH Live’s Information Security teams together with information technology professionals and suppliers have investigated and confirm that its internal systems have not been breached and that the emails were sent from known spam internet provider addresses.

‘The emails are not genuine and do not originate from BH Live. A number of precautionary measures have been taken to ensure data, systems and networks continue to be protected.’

Recipients should delete the emails and change passwords.
