Different Types Of Fraud And How To Help Prevent It

The tool was created with data that was compiled by the Financial Fraud Action and takes users through the 11 most common types of fraud, highlighting how much this costs the UK each year and providing advice to protect others from becoming a victim. The tool aims to inform users fully on the different types of fraud and help them with the prevention of it.

Earlier this year I was a victim of a card theft from a machine , I needed to get £20 out of a cash machine in London , I am one of those people who only gets cash out as I need it. I put my card into the ATM as I normally would shielding my number and it all seem to go through  until the machine stopped. I panicked , luckily I was with a friend , all of a sudden a man stepped up from behind me to show me a piece of paper warning people not to use the machine, I thought this was highly suspiscous as surely if the machine was faulty it wouldn't accept any more cards, immeadiately I went back to my hotel to ring the bank. I couldn't go into the bank as it was very late at night , this experience has made me wary of using ATM and using this tool will help me in future.

Disclosure I am being sent a gift in association with this post all though words and opinions are my own, Fraud is a very important subject that we should all be aware of and help try and prevent.
