We’re committed to keeping your money safe. And they’re not just words. Here are just some of the ways we’re investing time and money into staying secure.

Ways we protect your money

Keeping your money secure is one of our top priorities. Learn more about how we’re doing that, whether it’s online, in branch or in the way we look after your data.

What we’re doing

Money laundering, terrorist, and proliferation financing

Before we allow you to apply for a mortgage or open a savings account, we conduct checks to verify your identity. This is a regulatory requirement and helps us in preventing fraud and money laundering.

In line with legislation and regulation, to prevent and detect money laundering and fraud, the Society will conduct transaction monitoring. This is also there to protect victims and identify suspicious activity.

The Society will not tolerate any use of its products or services to facilitate money laundering and/or fraud.

Things we never do

The things we won’t do are just as important as the things we will when it comes to protecting your money. You can tell if a fraudster or scammer is pretending to be us if they do any of these.

  • Ask you to share your login details

  • Ask for Secure Passcodes

  • Carry out a test payment or move money

  • Ask you to lie about your transaction

  • Ask you to login using a link via email

  • Ask to control your computer remotely
