Scams

Alert message sent 02/03/2021 16:56:00

Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police


Can you spot the difference between a genuine request and one that’s a scam?

Criminals can pose as your bank and give a seemingly legitimate reason to trick you into updating your personal details through links contained in text messages. These may by embedded into genuine message threads making it increasingly difficult to spot.

If you think you have fallen for a scam, contact your bank immediately and report it to Action Fraud.

Make sure you forward scam texts to 7726, and if a scam text claims to be from your bank, then you should also report it to them.
