Scammers will sometimes imitate a bank's emails and SMS messages to steal your personal information. Here's how to tell whether SMS messages and emails are really from us.
We will only send you two kinds of messages:
We previously used to send email messages with money tips from email@example.com. Now we will only send you email messages with tips to help you manage your money better from firstname.lastname@example.org. Save this email address to your email contact list.
You can see the full list of all our money tips emails here.
We will only use links to share info already on our website.
What we will never do
We will never ask you to send us banking info such as your Remote Banking PIN or passwords via a link in an SMS or email. We'll only ask you to verify banking or personal info (never PINs or passwords) if you call us.
How to stay safe
You will have one number for bank messages and another for information messages. Each number is unique to each client and it will always be the same number for you, so save it to your phone's contact list to recognise messages from us. Also, save email@example.com to your email contact list.
Always remember the following:
Threatens to close or suspend your account if you don't take immediate action by providing your personal details
