How-to: Know the facts. Stop the fraud. [Re-post]


Know the facts. Stop the fraud. A worthwhile post care of the British Banking Association at bba.org.uk.

Keeping your money safe is your bank’s number one priority. That’s why they’ve set up secure procedures to protect you from fraudsters. But these criminals are often sophisticated and their techniques are constantly changing. One such ploy is to pretend they work for the police or your bank.
