What is fraud?

Fraud is a criminal act to deceive you and take your cash – it's a transaction that you didn't know about or authorise. For example, fraudsters may use your details to open accounts under your name or your business.

What is a scam?

A scam is where you’re tricked into making or authorising a payment to a criminal’s account. Scammers impersonate banks and official organisations using emails, phone calls and texts that look and sound genuine.

In the spotlight - Global IT incidents

Fraudsters will take advantage of global IT incidents, like major events that disrupted internet services across the globe on Friday 19 July 2024, impacting multinational industries including airlines, banking and healthcare.

Be extra vigilant when it comes to unsolicited communications especially following these kinds of events.

  • Be aware of calls offering to support you with issues. Always call a number back that you know is genuine for the firm you are dealing with
  • Avoid downloading any attachments from emails or software from unknown sources. This may result in malicious software being downloaded onto your device, which can result in the scammers gaining access to your device and personal information, including your online banking
  • Don’t grant third parties access to your device, by use of remote access tools. Fraudsters can take advantage of having full control of your device
  • Look out for emails or text messages asking you for personal information out of the blue and do not engage with them.
