Information and Tips
Public wi-fis are vulnerable to hacking and impersonation. Take care and avoid making card payments or logging into sensitive apps such as mobile banking when on public wi-fi.
The elderly and vulnerable can be particularly susceptible to fraudsters. Call them on the phone or drop by to chat to them about ways they could be targeted, and keep an eye out for any suspicious correspondence or activity.
Emails that contain links can contain malware or lead you to fake sites to capture your financial and personal details; visit websites independently instead.
Ads can contain malware. Take extra care!
If you run your life from your mobile phone or laptop, then so could a fraudster. Buy yourself time if your device gets lost or stolen by protecting it with a password or PIN (and no, not 1234 or 0000!)
Beware of fake jobs advertised online. If you’re asked to pay for security checks or expensive training upfront, it’s probably a scam. And if the job involves letting money be transferred through your account, then you could be a money mule – which is illegal.
Shopping online? Look for signs of a secure and encrypted connection on a website. There should be a padlock to the left of the website address. Click on it to see details of the verification, certification validity and the encryption connection.
No legitimate organization – including your bank , will ever ask you to disclose PIN numbers or other security details in full, transfer cash to a ‘safe’ account or withdraw cash for anti-fraud purposes.
Lost your wallet or had important documents stolen, or think your details have been compromised on a fake site? Report to the nearest Police station.
Keep your passwords complex by picking three random words and add or split them with symbols, numbers and capitals: e.g. ChandElier54%
Install anti-virus software on your laptop and any other personal devices and then keep it up to date.
