General tips and advice

When anyone asks for your money or personal details, remember:

  • if it seems too good to be true, it usually is
  • do not feel pressurised to make a decision on the spot - think about it, get advice and report if you think it’s a scam
  • scammers may tell you to keep the offer a secret - get a second opinion from someone you trust if you are suspicious
  • research the reputation of the company before giving them any of your details
  • scammers will come across friendly – they are not your friend
  • no legitimate business will ask for money to claim a prize
  • say no to unwanted, uninvited callers
