Real or scam?

Are you aware of the tactics used by criminals to trick you into parting with your money and information?

The creation of spoof websites that imitate those of trusted organisations by using their official branding and logos are used by criminals to obtain your personal and financial information.

These may also include small changes to the website’s URL which can be hard to spot at first. #Protect your money from falling into the hands of criminals by avoiding clicking on links in emails and texts. Instead login to your account directly using a secure webpage or app.

You can also contact an organisation directly using a known email or number for further support.

If you receive a scam email forward it to report@phishing.gov.uk and scam texts to 7726. If a scam text claims to be from your bank, then you should also report it to your bank.
