'Safe Account' Scam

Beware of receiving a phone call from someone claiming to be calling from your bank, or from police fraud investigators.
The bogus caller states there is an issue with the victim's bank account and advises them to move their money to a ‘safe account’. The victim will often be told that bank staff are suspected of being involved in a fraud which deters them from seeking advice in their local branch. Often the victims have no reason to doubt the fraudsters as they appear to know the victims personal details. The fraudsters will urge victims to act quickly.
Your bank and the police will never ask you to transfer your money into a ‘safe account’. If you receive such a phone call, end the call immediately.
