Protect yourself from fraud

At a time when changes are happening in the banking industry, you should be especially wary of banking and online account scams.

Steps you can take to protect yourself include:

  • Beware of calls out of the blue claiming to be from your bank
  • Remember, we will not call or email you asking for your personal information, account details or PIN for your bank or credit card
  • If you receive a call asking for this information, end the call immediately
  • It is best to call your bank back using the number on your card or bank statement
  • For those customers who deal with invoices or business to business payments, if someone calls asking you to change an account number and sort code or change an existing payment template on payments you make, make sure you confirm their identity before you make any changes.
