Coronavirus scams

Some criminals are using the coronavirus to trick people into sharing personal or financial information. Watch out for:

  • cold calls from criminals pretending to be from Nationwide – we’ll never ask for your card reader codes or ask you to move money to a safe account
  • strangers claiming they’ll help buy your shopping if you give them your card and PIN – never give your card and PIN to anyone
  • emails that ask you to click on a link to log in, update information, or to access important news – we’ll never ask you to do that from a link in an email or text.
