Protect your business from fraud
Discover how fraud can affect your business and what you can do about it.
- double check if a supplier asks you to change their details. You can do this by calling them on the number you have saved.
- confirm with the sender if you get an email from your business owner or a supplier asking you to make an urgent payment.
- be careful when you open any emails that you weren’t expecting (even if you think you know the sender). Don’t click on any links or attachments unless you’re sure they're safe.
- download something or give remote access (control of your device) if someone unexpected asks.
- share your internet banking details, card reader codes, your password or your PIN.
- move your money to a “safe/holding/secure account” for “security purposes”. We would never ask you to do this and neither would the police.
