Please remember the following Top tips to protect yourself and others:
•Be extra careful if you receive any phone calls, texts or emails from anyone claiming to be a bank or other trusted organisation. A genuine bank or organisation will never contact you out of the blue to ask for your PIN, full password, card reader codes, passcodes, or to move money to another account. Personal information is yours. Don’t give it away.
•Never click on a link received in an email or text that then takes you to a website requesting personal information or login details. Always go via a search engine or direct to the company website.
•Never allow remote access to your computer by any third party. Scammers will often ask you to download an app or will send you an email with a link such as Team Viewer.
•Watch out for poor grammar or spelling on emails/printed material/letters.
•Take 5. Stop and think about what you are being asked to do. If concerned, stop and talk to your family or a friend.
