Real time checks and biometrics

Real time checks

As you bank online, we use extra security checks to make sure it’s really you and not a fraudster.

Biometrics

We look at how you use your business account online to help us spot things that aren't normal. This helps us to tell if a fraudster is trying to use the account.

  • Bank name display

    If you set up a new payment, we may display which bank you’re sending money to like Barclays, HSBC, Tesco. This helps you to make sure a new payment goes to the right account.

    Helpful hints

    When you bank online, you may see helpful messages as you make a payment. These are there to stop scams.

  • Phone calls

    If we suspect fraud on the account, we may call to make sure it’s you.

    We’ll never call to ask you to move money to another account. And we’ll never ask for your log on details.

    Your data

    We use your data as set out in our terms and conditions, and by your data privacy rights. This protects you and your personal details

    We’ll never get in touch to ask you to move money to another account. Only a fraudster would do this. If you get a message like this, don’t reply.

     

    That’s correct, we’d never message to ask you to move money to another account – not even to secure an account.

     

    We’d never call from the number on the back of your bank card. Fraudsters can tell you to check this number to pretend it’s us calling. They can copy our telephone numbers to look genuine on your caller ID. If you get a call like this, hang up.

     

    That’s correct, we’d never call from the number on the back of your card. Fraudsters can tell you to check this number to convince you it’s a genuine call. If in doubt, hang up.

  • Share account details like user ID, password and memorable information.
  • Tell us the security number for Telephone Banking.
  • Tell us the PIN code or expiry date of your business bank card.
