It is very important to look after your money so that nobody can steal it from you! Criminals are always coming up with new ways to try and get their hands on your hard-earned cash, but you can help keep your money safe and reduce your chances of becoming a victim by following these hints and tips:
At shops or ATMs:
On the computer:
Make sure your passwords include both small letters and capital letters, as well us numbers and other characters – and change your password often.
NEVER give your usernames, passwords or PIN to anyone via email, by fax or by phone.
Never enter your email username and password on any link you receive via email. Criminals can create emails which seems to be from the actual company, tricking you.
Don’t use public computers for banking.
Ensure you have a reliable anti-virus software on your computer. Always log out of Internet banking or other accounts and do not leave the computer while you’re logged on.
IMPORTANT: To make sure your cards and other banking details are safe, don’t let your cards out of your sight, and NEVER tell your PIN to anyone. Always check your bank statements regularly, and if you suspect any type of fraud on your account, report it to your bank immediately!
