3. Take Five

Financial Fraud Action UK and all major banks and key financial services providers across the UK have come together to launch Take Five, a national campaign to combat financial fraud. The campaign aims to put consumers and businesses back in control with straight forward advice to help prevent financial fraud. It focuses on financial fraud directly targeting customers, such as email deception (known as phishing) and phone and text based scams (sometimes known as vishing and smishing), and is designed to remind people that it pays to stop and think. It will also help protect people from criminals duping them into moving money into bank accounts controlled by the fraudsters. Find out more
