In support of the Take Five to Stop Fraud campaign
Posted on 6th May 2021 at 16:53
Fraud poses a major threat to the UK.
It is a crime that the finance industry is committed to tackling, but it is also one that requires the combined efforts of every sector, both public and private, to overcome.
Criminals are experts at impersonating people, organisations, and the police.
They spend hours researching you for their scams, hoping you will let your guard down for just a moment.
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 is ok to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.
Protect: Contact your bank immediately if you think you have fallen for a scam and report it to Action Fraud.
Stop and think. It could protect you and your money.
