Every day, people are deceived into giving fraudsters a helping hand.
Criminals operate sophisticated scams that can catch out even savvy consumers. If someone asks us to hand over personal or financial details, move money to a safe account or invites us to click on an uninvited email link or text, we need to stop and think.
We all have the power to stop fraud happening to us, our friends and family, right now. This starts with taking five seconds and remembering a simple message ‘My money? My info? I don’t think so’
Take Five is a national campaign that offers advice to help consumers prevent financial fraud. This includes email deception and phone-based scams as well as online fraud– particularly where criminals impersonate trusted organisations.
