Commom scams to watch out

Phishing Scams

With phishing, scammers use texts and emails to trick individuals into giving up personal information. The information they want includes passwords, social security numbers, account numbers, and whatever other important information they can get their hands on.

Employment Scams

Employment scams are another common way to access people's financial accounts. The scammer promises guaranteed work in exchange for an up-front fee. They may also ask for bank account information to transfer commission payments to you. This is all a front to get your account information, though.

Scam calls

Phone scammers will call you unsolicited, pretending to be from an organisation you trust, such as your bank, the police, pension pots, or even the NHS. The scam calls may be automated or be from an actual person.

We're educating you on the things we can't protect you from

We can't protect you from certain things like if you share specific details or give someone access to your account, it might not be easy to protect you. But where we can't interfere, we will try to make sure you are prepared for situations where people try to take your money.

Not only do we have our initiatives on our website and our social media, but we're also supporting the launch of a major new campaign designed to tackle financial fraud. The “Take Five” campaign aims to put consumers and businesses back in control with straightforward advice to help prevent financial fraud, and so we encourage you all to take a moment to view the information.

This code changes frequently, so you do not need to memorize it. Enter this code in the empty space provided in Figure 1 and click "Activate" .
Your (two)2FA should now be activated and you should be asked to enter the (two)2FA code every time you want to log in to your account. This way, even if someone knows (or has hacked) you and has your password, they will not be able to log into your account without access to your mobile phone.

2-Factor Authentication

There are various ways to log in to your account. But as security threats increase, so does the need for stricter account security measures. (Two) 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a login process that provides extra security to your account even if your password is compromised.
Once you put in your user name and password, you will be required to type in a one-time password that is generated by an authentication app (e.g. Google Authenticator) on your mobile phone.
This password changes every time you try to log in.
