This morning BBC news reported losses to financial fraud have increased by over 25% in the past year.
A separate survey revealed that over 25% of people carry as little as £10 cash with them and most transactions are being made digitally.
Remain aware and alert when transacting and sharing information online.
Banks claim they are stopping £7 of every £10 in potential fraud losses, but millions of pounds is still being lost to fraudsters. Last year, financial fraud losses reached £755m - a 26% increase on the previous year. You can probably add to that a significant sum that goes unreported every year. Email deception, as well as phone and text-based scams are now common tools in the modern-day bank robber's trade - reflected in official crime figures which now include fraud data.
