Staying alert for fraud
Unfortunately, fraudsters are taking advantage of the current situation, and are targeting people with coronavirus-linked scams. Please be extra cautious when receiving any kind of contact, including texts, emails or calls requesting money, asking for personal details or to click on a link, and never disclose confidential information. We will never ask you for confidential online banking information.
