Sophie held a workshop with some members where they learned some top tips on how to avoid online scams! 

In this blog post, we will share with you what they learnt.

Scammers pretend to be someone else, like your bank or Royal Mail, to steal your information or mone.

People might try to scam you by email, text or on the phone.

If you are not sure if it is your bank on the phone, hang up and call the telephone number on the back of your bank card. 

You can also call 159 and be put through to your bank. This is a free number.

Do not open links in emails if you do not trust who it is from.

Download antivirus software on your computer.

Antivirus is a kind of software used to stop, look, find, and delete viruses from a computer.

Paul’s Top Tip

One of our Trustees Paul also has a top tip to share!

Remember your bank, Royal Mail or Amazon will not contact you for your personal information by phone.

If someone you do not trust is asking for this information, do not tell them. It is private to you.

If you think you might have been scammed, always tell someone you trust
