Think you'd spot a financial scam if you saw one? Lots of people claim they could. Yet in 2018, £354m was lost to Authorised Push Payment scams. Could you afford to lose that kind of money – or more?

Remember – before you send any money, take note of our tailored warnings and ensure you take appropriate actions. Check that the payee is actually the person who they claim to be, and that any goods or services are legitimate. If you are in any doubt – STOP.
