Protecting yourself from Scams

23rd January 2017

As you may have seen, there has been extensive media coverage in recent weeks about different types of scams currently targeting local residents.   

You are reminded to be vigilant about any requests for your personal security information, as scammers can be very convincing. In addition, if you ever receive an SMS or email asking you to contact your bank, you should always do so using the phone number you have on any existing documents or on your bank card.  Further advice is available from the Action Fraud website and the Commission’s Consumer Pages.

If you think you have fallen victim to a scam you should tell your bank immediately and also report it to Guernsey Police.
