Alert message sent 27/02/2019 11:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland

If you receive a new bank card in the post from a bank you don't use, make sure you contact the bank and query it. A number of people have reported receiving a new debit card and after querying it with the bank, finding out a new bank account has been opened in their name.

Fraudsters can use these new accounts (set up in your name) as mull accounts and transfer money, often gained through fraud in and out.

If you get a new card in the post, don't assume it's an error, always follow up with the issuing bank.
