Protect your current account against cyber fraud

You’ve no doubt read about it, or you may even know someone who has experienced it themselves. Cyber fraud is on the rise. That’s why it’s a good idea to stay on guard when using your phone, computer, and other devices. Here are just some examples of what cyber fraud can look like: 

  • WhatsApp fraud
    You receive a WhatsApp message from your (grand)child: ‘Hey, I'm at my digs and my mobile has been stolen, this is my new number. I really need to make a transfer today to pay for my books but now I can't do that... could you please do it for me? I'll pay you back as soon as I can!’ – While this may seem innocent enough, this is actually a scam. Once you’ve made the payment for your (grand)child, that will be the last you hear from them.

  • Online bookings
    Alternatively, you might have booked a holiday home in Italy online, but when you arrive you discover that the property doesn’t exist and the scammer has run off with your money. 
  • Online purchases
    You’ve spotted a beautiful 4K television at an incredible discount which you rush to buy online (the payment comes straight off your account), but the TV is never delivered as the online shop turns out to be fake.
  • Fake e-mails
    You receive an urgent e-mail from ‘your energy supplier’ reminding you to pay your bill using a link in the message. If you don’t pay, they’ll shut off your electricity right away. You later find out that the e-mail wasn’t from your energy supplier at all, but from scammers who tricked you into making immediate payment before making off with your money.

The complete list of cover provided and exclusions can be found in the general conditions.
