How to Avoid Online Fraud This Christmas.

During lockdown more people are looking to do their Christmas shopping online. To protect yourself from potential scams it’s worth taking a look at the Get Safe Online website, it’s full of tips to help you avoid common scams.  

Here are some examples of their advice:

  • Being asked to pay a company or individual you don’t know for goods by bank transfer could be a sign of fraud. Pay by credit card as this gives you more protection.
  • Make sure shopping websites are authentic by carefully checking the address is spelled correctly. Fraudsters are expert at setting up fake sites with spellings that are almost the same as the real ones.
  • Make sure payment pages are secure by checking that the address begins with https (s is for secure).
  • A ‘free’ or ‘low-cost’ trial could mean a subscription trap – luring you into monthly payments that are difficult to get out of. Read the small print before you agree to anything.
  • Unexpected emails, texts or posts with links or attachments could be phishing – trying to get your confidential details or infecting your computer with malware.

If you think you’ve been a victim of fraud you can report it to Action Fraud UK at www.actionfraud.police.uk or by calling 0300 123 2040.
