  • Never disclose security details, such as your PIN or full password – it’s never right to reveal these details.
  • Never assume an email request or caller is genuine – people aren’t always who they say they are.
  • Don’t be rushed – a bank or genuine organisation won’t mind waiting to give you time to stop and think.
  • Listen to your instincts – if something feels wrong then it is usually right to pause and question what’s happening.
  • Stay in control – have the confidence to refuse unusual requests for information
