FraudSMART has launched our new TV advert alerting customers to fake text messages pretending to be your bank.

Never click on links in text messages.

FraudSMART Advice:

  • Banks will only ever ask you to reply to text messages with ‘Y’ or ‘N’.
  • Never to click on links or give personal or financial information.
  • Do not clink on a link or attachment from unsolicited emails or text messages.
  • If you think you have responded to a scam text message, contact your bank immediately.
  • Contact your bank using the number on the back of your debit / credit card.
  • Numbers in a text message as this could be a fake number.
  • Never give away personal information, bank card payment details, bank account details or security details such as your PIN or online password to anyone.
