Scam advice


STOP, HANG UP CALL 159

If you think someone is trying to trick you into handing over money or personal details - stop, hang up and call 159 to speak directly to your bank

How it works

159 works in the same way as 101 for the police or 111 for the NHS. It’s the number you can trust to get you through to your bank safely and securely, every time. So if you think someone is trying to trick you into handing over money or personal details - stop, hang up and call 159 to speak directly to your bank.
