Five key things to remember

  1. Never disclose security details, such as your PIN or full password - it’s never okay to reveal these details.
  2. Don’t assume an email request or caller is genuine - people aren’t always who they say they are.
  3. Don’t be rushed into a decision – a genuine bank or organisation won’t mind waiting to give you time to stop and think.
  4. Listen to your instincts – if something feels wrong then it is usually right to pause and question it.
  5. Stay in control – have the confidence to refuse unusual requests for information.
