Beware of suspicious links
Just because someone knows your basic details, it doesn't mean they are genuine
Don't give anyone remote access to your computer following a cold call or unsolicited message
Report suspicious text messages by forwarding the message to SMS number 7726, which spells out SPAM on a phone keypad. You can also report suspicious phone numbers by texting 'CALL' to 7726 and following the prompts.
If you think you've been scammed, contact your bank immediately and report it to
Have you heard of distraction burglary?
It is when burglars pretend to be someone, they are not in order to gain entry to a home.
There are a number of things you can do to prevent distraction burglary, including:
Use your door viewer to see who’s there
If you open the door, put the chain on first
Always ask for ID and check it with the company before letting somebody into your home
Remember that genuine callers won’t mind checks. If you feel at all unsure, schedule a time for the caller to come back when a friend or relative is there
For pre-planned appointments with utility companies, a password scheme can be set up
