Beating banking fraud:

The following banks have signed up for a pilot scheme to help prevent telephone banking scams:

  • Barclays

  • Lloyds (including Halifax and Bank of Scotland)

  • NatWest (including Royal Bank of Scotland and Ulster Bank)

  • Santander

  • Starling Bank

If ever you’re contacted by someone claiming to be from your bank and telling you that you’ve been the subject of fraud, if you have any doubts, HANG UP and dial 159.

Call 159 if:

  • Someone contacts you saying they’re from your bank – even if they are not suspicious

  • You receive a call asking you to transfer money or make a payment – even if it seems genuine

  • You receive a call about a financial matter and it seems suspicious

Remember, 159 will never call you. But you can rely on 159 to get you through to your bank.
