We’re committed to protecting you from fraud, and being aware of the latest scams is the best way to stay safe.
Be aware that some criminals are using coronavirus to trick people into sharing personal or financial information. In particular, watch out for suspicious emails or texts relating to coronavirus asking you to update details, or log-in directly to your internet bank via a link in the message. Also watch out for cold callers asking you to move your money to a ‘safe account’ and strangers offering to buy your shopping if you give them your card and PIN.
If you receive this message or one like it, do not act on it as it is a scam. It may look like it has been sent by Nationwide, but it’s a fake. Remember, we always include the last four digits of your card number in a text, and never ask you to use your card reader over the phone.
If you suspect fraudsters might have access to your money, call us straight away.

Fraudsters will try to trick you into giving out your internet banking and other personal details to access your account.
Scams are intended to trick you into giving away your details, or your money. They can look and sound believable, which makes it difficult to tell them apart from genuine companies or investment opportunities.
This happens when someone uses your card details to make a purchase or withdraw cash without your permission.
Fraudsters can use your personal details to pretend to be you – which can give them access to more than just your finances.
