Scam warning as thousands of Britons attacked – what to do if you fall victim

“You can ask for some form of protection to be applied to your accounts, like a password or a warning marker that means you will be contacted if anyone attempts to transfer funds out of your accounts or if any details are asked to be amended.

“You can also contact CIFAS, a charity fraud prevention organisation. 

“Taking out its Protective Registration will flag your name and personal details to its National Fraud Database – companies signed up to the database will see you’re at risk, and take extra steps to protect you.”

If a scam results in personal details, such as a password, being stolen, or if a person suspects this might have happened, quick action is required.
