Watch for any unauthorised activity: Always know what transactions are expected. Even the smallest unauthorised transfer can be a danger sign.
Don’t ignore notifications: If you get an email saying your account details have changed and you didn’t change them, your account may be compromised.
Beware of bogus calls: If someone phones and claims to be from your payment provider, insist on calling them back on the company’s public phone number.
Don’t trust the text: If you suddenly start getting messages or calls from a mobile number that your provider doesn’t normally use—be very suspicious.
Check every email: If an email or other online communication doesn’t look genuine, don’t reply to it without checking with your provider.
Look out for bogus links: If you see strange activity on your account, check to see if you’ve clicked any suspicious links in your email recently.
