Please be aware that criminals are using the publicity around COVID-19 as a chance to pose as a genuine organisation, including banks, police officers, government, the World Health Organisation or other health service providers.
Watch out for fake text messages or calls as criminals take advantage of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. Remember, the vaccine is free and the NHS will never ask for payment or bank details.
Tesco Bank, the police or any other government body will never ask any customer to divulge any security information, including any PIN numbers or Online Banking credentials. Customers will never be asked to move money into a safe account for protection.
If there has been any unusual activity on your account or you think you've fallen for a scam please report this as soon as possible.
Criminals want your money and they are experts at getting it.
They will go to great lengths to impersonate people, organisations and the police, using calls, emails, texts and social media to manipulate you. Even the savviest person can be tricked into revealing security details or sending them money.
Take a moment to stop and think: it could protect you and your money.
My money, My info, I don't think so!
