SCAM AWARENESS WEEK takes place from 7–11 November 2022

There are some simple ways to detect a scam.

Here are some things to look out for:

•             A person or a message urging you to act quickly, whether it’s a threat to make an urgent payment, a request for upfront payment or a limited opportunity too good to miss.

•             A person or a message asking you to update or provide your personal details, such as identifying information, banking details or passwords, or asking to remotely access your device.

•             Any payment request via unsecure or unusual methods such as cryptocurrency, gift cards or bank transfer.

•             A person or suspicious message claiming they have new contact details or asking for payment to a new bank account.

•             Anyone offering unsolicited financial or investment advice or claiming you can make fast or guaranteed money with little to no risk
