We’re proud to be supporting #Take5 national campaign that offers advice to help people identify possible financial scams. Financial fraud can come in many forms including email deception and phone-based scams. Criminals spend hours researching you for their scams, trying to trick you. Take five urges you to stop and consider whether the situation is genuine or not before you give any information.
STOP – Taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.
CHALLENGE – Could it be fake? It’s ok to reject or ignore requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.
PROTECT - Contact your bank or building society immediately if you think you’ve fallen for a scam and report it to Action Fraud
