Date Revised:

Contact Action Fraud to report a scam, fraud or cyber crime. Your bank may also be able to help.

Visit the Action Fraud website or you can also call them on 0300 123 2040

If you, or the person you care for, has had money taken from a bank account or handed over personal bank details to a fraudster contact your bank straightaway.

How else can your bank help?

If you've received a suspicious email that claims to be from your bank email your bank (using the email on their website) and then delete the email immediately.

If you receive a text message asking you to call your bank on a number you don’t recognise, check it’s a genuine number by calling the number on the back of your card.

Always check your statements and contact your bank straight away if you spot anything unusual.

Thank you to Barclays Bank Plc for helping us write this page.
