Too smart to be scammed?

Try this five minute test and see if you can find the fraud


Action Fraud are helping people identify scams with a quick and easy test on the messages you may receive on your phone or computer:

Action Fraud’s Take Five Campaign encourages people to take a minute, stop and think before responding to suspicious text messages and emails.


Requests to move money: A genuine bank or organisation will never contact you asking for your PIN, full password or to move money to a safe account. Don’t give out personal or financial details.

Clicking on links/files: Don’t be tricked into giving a fraudster access to your personal or financial details. Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text.

Personal information: Always question uninvited approaches and never give out personal or financial details, in case it’s a scam. Instead, contact the company directly using a known email or phone number (such as the number on the back of your payment card or the one displayed on their official website).
