WMNow - Stay updated Get involved
Fraud is a crime that can happen to anyone.
However, by following simple steps you can help put a stop to the scammers!
Here are our top 5 tips:
– Never give personal information to anybody before they provide and verify their credentials 
– Always remain vigilant at cashpoints & report anything suspicious straight away
– Remember, the bank or police will NEVER ring you to ask for personal details such as your bank card PIN
– When online, use a variety of strong passwords and be cautious about any unexpected and unrecognised emails
– Be careful when using online auction sites and always pay using the correct payment channel
If you feel that you have been a victim of fraud, you can report it directly to Action Fraud – the national fraud reporting centre on 0300 123 2040 or click here for the Action Fraud website.
