Scam emails, hoax emails and phishing attempts

Updated: January 2021

Some members have told us they’ve received an email offering Bulb bonds or shares for sale.

The email:

  • appears to come from ‘DST Global’
  • has the subject line ‘DST GLOBAL - BULB ENERGY BOND’
  • comes with documents attached

This is a fraudulent email and this offer is false.
Bulb bonds or shares are not for sale.

If you receive a suspicious email, do not reply

If you do receive this email, or if you’re suspicious about any other email that appears to be from Bulb, please forward it to, then mark the email as ‘spam’ and delete it from your inbox.

If your concern is urgent, for example if you think your account has been hacked, call us on 0300 303 0635.

You can also file a report with the police online, at Action Fraud.
