Tips to stay safe when shopping online

Here you can find some useful tips on how to shop online safely.

Be aware of scammers

Be aware of emails promoting fake cures

Be alert to suspicious phone calls, texts or emails about coronavirus from anyone claiming to be from the bank or other trusted organisations. We’ll never ask you for your full PIN, password, card reader codes, one time passcodes or to move money from your account.

Watch out for impersonation scams

Be vigilant if anyone you don’t know comes to your door pretending to be from the NHS, WHO or another organisation offering products or services relating to coronavirus. Don’t hand over money or personal details.

Tax refunds linked to Coronavirus

The HMRC will not contact you by email to discuss tax refunds, so never click or respond. Never download attachments from emails you have received out of the blue.

Talk to us if you are unsure something's genuine

If anyone gets in touch unexpectedly and asks you for information, please hang up or do not reply. Get in touch directly using the number on the back of your card, or a number you trust. If possible, call us from a different phone or mobile.
