Police prevention campaign against phishing

Last week saw the start of the national police prevention campaign against phishing, focusing on credit and debit card fraud.

When phishing, fraudsters contact their victims via e-mail, text or by telephone to get hold of personal data such as credit or debit card information and then steal their money.

If you take just a few precautions, you can protect yourself:

  • Be wary of messages received from people unknown.
  • Never click on any links or open any attachments.
  • Always check sender e-mail-addresses and URLs.
  • Only sign in via official websites (never use a link).
  • Keep your web browsers and operating system up-to-date.
  • Never disclose log-in or card details.
  • Use strong passwords and two-factor authentification.
  • Activate messaging services to receive a notification upon every payment.
  • Check transactions and payments.

You can find detailed information on the topic of phishing in our article on phishing.

Further information on the campaign and a related competition can be found here.
