Had a great time talking to @CHS_6thForm students about fraud awareness this morning, promoting the @TakeFive campaign, and meeting @GlosSaferCyber with view to working together to spread these important messages @LBGAmbSthWest #takefive #tell2
Beware of text message scams! If a text seeming to be from your bank asks you to call a number that is unknown to you, call your bank on a number that you know and trust. #TakeFive to check the number and message is authentic… pic.twitter.com/LtHg2MwiS2
Take Five is a national campaign that offers straight-forward and impartial advice to help everyone protect themselves from preventable financial fraud. This includes email deception and phone-based scams as well as online fraud – particularly where criminals impersonate trusted organisations. Led by Financial Fraud Action UK (part of UK Finance) and backed by Her Majesty’s Government, it is being delivered with and through a range of partners in the UK payments industry, financial services firms, law enforcement agencies, telecommunication providers, commercial, public and third sector organisations.
