Stay SAFE Hub

Here's where we share more information about different frauds and scams and how you can keep yourself safe.

We know how hard you’ve worked for your money. That’s why we do all we can to keep it secure. Fraudsters and scammers are always trying new ways to get their hands on what doesn’t belong to them. This Security & Anti Fraud Education (SAFE) Hub is a place for you to find out about the latest schemes and ways to stop them.

I think I've been scammed

  1. Act quickly – Contact your bank or building society straight away, so they can try to stop any payments.
  2. Contact us - Call 0345 850 0469, web chat or email us. If you’re contacting us outside normal operating hours, please leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
  3. Passwords – We’ll NEVER ask you for your full login details or password while verifying your identity.
  4. Report the crime – Phone the Police Action Fraud line on 0300 123 2040. They’ll give you a reference number and pass the report on to the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau.
  5. Help prevent scams – You can report a scam to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) using this form or by phoning the FCA Consumer Helpline on 0800 111 6768.
  6. Learn about ongoing scams – If you’ve lost money to a scam, you might be approached again as part of the original scam. A new company might even offer to help you recoup your losses. Be cautious and research the company or anyone who approaches you.
