Scammers hit every 15 seconds!

 
 

In the first 6 months of 2016 in the UK there were over 1 million fraud attempts, or 1 every 15 seconds. That’s a massive increase from 2015 over the same period. Between January and June this year there has been 1,007,094 fraud cases in the UK. In the first 6 months of 2015 there were 660,308 fraud cases in the UK. Each case logged has been an account or a card attacked, not an individual person.

The UK payment industry is asking everyone to “Take Five” before they give out any personal details. This advice could stop someone from being the next victim, just pausing and thinking before handing out information.
