Your TSB Card has been locked due to unusual activity at 05.15. Proceed to https://tsbfraud.com to review the charge on your card"

TSB will never:

  • Contact you out of the blue letting you know your money is at risk, and we’ll never ask for your PIN, one-time password or your Internet Banking log in details.
  • Ask you to hand over your card, PIN or cash – and neither will the police.
  • Ask you to transfer money into another "safe" account.

If you have been tricked by the scam text message, please contact TSB immediately for help.
