Stay safe while using online banking


Criminals are experts at impersonating people, organisations and the police. They spend hours researching you for their scams, hoping you’ll let your guard down for just a moment. Stop and think. It could protect you and your money.

Avoid using a search engine to access your online bank account. Instead create a link to your bank's homepage into the address bar of your browser.

Never click on a link in an email that takes you to a log in page.

Never tell anyone your credentials, passwords or verification codes - not even your bank!

If somebody calls you and asks you to download something on to your device and then asks you to log in to your account, stop! It’s a scam!

Remember, neither your Bank nor the Police will ask you to move your money to another account to keep it safe.
