A number of our business partners have been warning their clients of an increase in instances of attempted cyber fraud and we also wish to alert you to the potential risks in order to keep yourself and your assets safe from cyber-criminals

Cyber fraud poses a significant risk, specifically where fraudsters mimic organisations or hack into the email accounts of clients.
Large reputable organisations will never randomly send you an email requesting you pay funds to a bank account.

If you receive an email that appears to be from an organisation you deal with notifying you that they have changed their bank details or requesting alternative bank details from you, it is very likely to be from a fraudster.  

  • Do not reply to the email.  
  • Do not click on any links or attachments that may be included in the email.

Telephone the organisation mentioned in the email as soon as possible and advise them that you have received this email.
If you have any concerns that your email or personal information has been compromised, contact your service provider immediately.

Remember to change your passwords regularly and keep your computer software and security up to date.
