Scams to spot......and STOP!

We all like to think we are savvy to scams, but with more sophisticated applications, come more sophisticated hoaxes.  However, if you are vigilant and keep yourself updated of fraudsters' tricks, you will reduce your chances of getting caught out.  

Below we have listed the most common scams, how to spot them and how to stop them.  Please remember that this list is not exhaustive as fraudsters will always find new ways to scam people, so the most important things to remember are:

  • NEVER give out your full password or pin code.  No legitimate service will ever ask for it all.
  • If something seems too good to be true, it probably is!
  • If you think you've been a victim of fraud, contact your bank or building society immediately and report to Action Fraud
