Our investigation into the cyber attack on our website on Wednesday 21 October 2015 has shown that on its own, the information that may have been accessed is not enough to withdraw money from customers’ bank accounts.
The greatest risk is criminals committing fraud by either impersonating customers or targeting them for phone scams, but there a several other of scam that it is worth keeping an eye out for too:
Fake refunds Scammers may try to get personal information by telling you that you are due a refund. The PPI scam calls are a perfect example of the refund scam.
Offering technical support : More scammers are calling people to gain remote access to their computer so they can access personal information.
Directing to scam website Scammers may direct you to a website that looks like it could be an official site. Make sure you are definitely on the right website and not on a scammer site.
