Fraud and Scams

If you’re worried about online fraud and scams, we can help you to spot the warning signs, protect yourself and report anything suspicious.

Take this Online Fraud Test on the Take Five to Stop Fraud website, to see some of the different types of scams you may encounter online, along with genuine messages you may receive from banks and other organisations. Can you find the fraud? See also their Fraud Advice page for further information.
