Avoiding scams

There are some simple steps you can take to make sure you don’t lose money or personal details through a scam:

  • Don’t ever give bank details, money or personal information to someone you don’t know. Hang up the phone, shut the door or delete the email.
  • Legitimate organisations will never ask for your PIN, passwords or bank details.
  • Don’t feel pressured. A genuine organisation will give you time to check credentials and consider what you want to do.
