HOW TO BECOME A "FRAUD FIGHTER"
STAY ONE STEP AHEAD AT ALL TIMES
WITH A FEW GUIDELINES ON HOW TO KEEP THOSE NASTY INDIVIDUALS
AWAY FROM YOUR PRIVATE INFORMATION


When it comes to keeping your money safe and your personal documentation and private identity YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO CAREFUL. SO BECOME A FRAUD FIGHTER TODAY !!!!

STAY ONE STEP AHEAD


Unfortunately, Scammers and Fraudsters now cost the United Kingdom an estimated £2 Million per day, according to recent data obtained from the Banking Community.

Here's a little advice to assist you in the FIGHT AGAINST FRAUD:

Keep your PIN Number to yourself :
A Bank or other respected Financial Organisation will NEVER ask you to share your PASSCODE or PIN NUMBER (either in part or in full). So ALWAYS keep that information close to your chest.

Ditch those weak passwords :
Make things harder to crack by using a PASSWORD with a clever mix of NUMBERS, SYMBOLS and UPPER & LOWER CASE LETTERS.

Update your Computer Anti-Virus :

The older your Computer Software is, the EASIER IT IS TO HACK. So always check that your Anti-Virus software is up to date and running smoothly.

Keep your Phone under lock and ID :
There is probably a lot of "private and personal stuff" on your Mobile Phone. So always remember to lock it with a PASSWORD or fingerprint ID.

Avoid Auto-Complete Forms :
It can help STOP Fraudsters from getting into your accounts and data quickly if they EVER get their hands on your devices.

Shred, Shred and Shred again :
Before you bin things that show any of your Personal Data and information, give them a good shred. It's the SAFEST way to get rid of your details .

Thinking of a different Birthday Present? Then buy a SHREDDER from as little as £10 - £20. It would be money VERY WELL SPENT !!

It's been nearly a year since G.D.P.R (General Data Protection Regulations) came in !!

Your private information is SOLID GOLD for Companies and it NEEDS PROTECTING.

Data Breaches are still a real, hot topic. Sensitive, private information about YOU can be MIS-USED or DISCLOSED by Firms or Hackers. SO BEWARE !!

Your Data includes things like Credit Card Details and Passwords to your email accounts.

Even your Date of Birth COULD be used by Criminals to OPEN ACCOUNTS IN YOUR NAME !

Your Rights under G.D.P.R
Most people have now heard of G.D.P.R, which is an EU Directive put in place to provide GREATER PROTECTIONS for your Personal Data.

The United Kingdom implemented these new Rules within the Data Protection Act 2018. (St. Gregory's Credit Union Ltd produced our GDPR Policy during May 2018 for Members).

This New Act gives you lots of rights including :
  • The right to be informed when personal data is collected and used.
  • The right to access your personal data held by a Company making a request for information OR applying a Freedom of Information request.
  • The right to have your personal data erased.
  • The right to restrict processing of your personal data.
  • The right to object to the use of your personal data.


If you feel that a Company is FLOUTING the Law and BREACHING your DATA RIGHTS, then PUT YOUR COMPLAINT IN WRITING TO THEM.

Make sure that you fully set out what you are complaining about and mention that the matters you are complaining about amount to a BREACH of the Data Protection Act
