This episode of the podcast is taken from my recent Facebook Live in which I chat with Terry Robb Head of Personal Banking at Ulster Bank. Financial fraud is becoming more prevalent so protecting your money whilst shopping particularly in the run up to Christmas is really important.
I’ve teamed up with Ulster Bank over the next few weeks to contribute to the ‘TAKE FIVE TO STOP FRAUD’ national campaign from Financial Fraud Action UK and the UK Government.
We kicked off on Black Friday (which one you say J) and are creating and posting tips to help keep you safe – videos, blogs, Instagram stories and Facebook and Twitter posts out with practical advice to prevent scams in the run up to Christmas.
Terry chats about the common types of fraud and scams which can impact people as well as sharing simple and effective ways which people can protect themselves. We chat about the ‘Take 5 to Stop Fraud’
Stop and Think when you receive a request to move money. A genuine bank or organisation will never contact you out of the blue to ask for your PIN, full password or to move money to another account.
Only give out your personal or financial details to use a service that you have given your consent to, that you trust and that you are expecting to be contacted by.
When clicking on links or files, don’t be tricked into giving someone access to your personal or financial details.
Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text.
This podcast is sponsored by Ulster Bank Northern Ireland, I believe it’s sound advice which is why I’m working with the bank on this campaign. As always, all views and opinions are my own.
