Banking Fraud

An important message that I know gets often repeated, however please think about who else you can talk to about how to keep themselves safe. Perhaps you have vulnerable parents, neighbours or friends who will need a regular reminder about how to keep themselves safe. Peter Levy the presenter on Look North has recently been the victim of a telephone scam where he was contacted by someone claiming to be from his bank and lost half his savings. It can happen to any of us if we do not remain vigilant.

Action Fraud


❗️ Your bank will never contact you and ask you to withdraw cash to help secure your account. 🤔

 Don’t assume a phone call is authentic just because someone knows your name and address.
