COVID-19 – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM FRAUD
There is some evidence that criminals are attempting to use the current COVID-19 situation as an exploitation opportunity, so please be extra vigilant before clicking on an email about the coronavirus outbreak. If a claim sounds too good to be true, it probably is...
Criminals use exceptional circumstances like the current situation as a chance to pose as employees of a genuine organisation such as building society, bank or police and target you for fraud scams. They may claim they are dealing with coronavirus-related issues that require you to respond by paying money or providing personal information that will allow them to access your account. They often use pressure tactics to stop you thinking about want they want you do for them.
To help you stay protected, here are some things that we will never do:
Ask you to disclose your PIN number or other passwords for your accounts
Encourage you to move funds from your own account into a different “safe” account
Charge up-front fees for repayment holidays
Make home visits to collect mortgage arrears on your doorstep
Demand an immediate payment of mortgage arrears over the phone
Demand payment of mortgage arrears via email providing you with a link through which to make payments.
Please remain vigilant.
Stop – Take a moment to think. Challenge – Don’t be afraid to ask questions or to say “No” and end the conversation. Protect – Contact the building society or the bank from which you have made a payment immediately if you think that you have been the victim of fraud.
We understand that some customers may be worried about the effect that contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19) could have on their finances, for example due to a drop in income as a result of contracting the virus or because of the measures imposed to stop it spreading. If you have any concerns about how this could affect you and your mortgage, please click here to read the leaflet produced by the Building Societies Association and National Debtline or please get in touch on 01664 414141.
