The UK's High Street banks are warning that millions of account holders are vulnerable to fraud - online or over the phone.
List of things Banks will NEVER do
To begin with, three major UK banks are printing thousands of leaflets, to warn their customers about such scams. They list eight things a bank will never do:
Ask for your full Pin number or any online banking passwords over the phone or via email
Send someone to your home to collect cash, bank cards or anything else
Ask you to email or text personal or banking information
Send an email with a link to a page which asks you to enter your online banking login details
Ask you to authorise the transfer of funds to a new account or hand over cash
Call to advise you to buy diamonds, land or other commodities
Ask you to carry out a test transaction online
Provide banking services through any mobile apps other than the bank's official apps.
