How to Protect Yourself
The public is asked to remain vigilant and be cautious of any automated or robocalls they receive mentioning their National Insurance number becoming compromised. It’s important to remember if you’re contacted out the blue by someone asking for your personal or financial details, this could be a scam. Even confirming personal details, such as your email address, date of birth or mother’s maiden name, can be used by criminals to commit fraud.
If you have any doubts about what is being asked of you, hang up the phone. No legitimate organisation will rush or pressure you. And, if you have provided personal details to someone over the phone and you now believe this to be a scam, contact your bank, building society and credit card company immediately and report it to Police.
