Tips for staying safe while banking

Do not tell anyone your PIN. Keep your PIN secret. You should not be asked to directly tell a person your 4-digit PIN – you should only have to enter it into a machine.

Make sure you keep your personal and bank details to yourself. Do not share them with people you do not trust.

Check your bank statements to make sure that all of the money that has gone out of your bank account is for amounts you recognise and remember spending. If you do not recognise an amount, talk to a member of staff at your bank or someone you trust.

Make sure you keep your credit and debit cards safe and secure.

If you lose a card, speak to a member of staff at your bank or card provider. They will cancel the lost card and send you a new one.

Tips for avoiding scams

Only give out your personal details to websites and emails that you trust. Look for the lock symbol by the website address bar at the top. This indicates a website should be secure.

If you are unsure whether a website is secure, ask someone you trust to have a look at the website.

Take your time. There is no need to rush anything. Think before you give anyone your personal information
