Make easy money by becoming a Visa ambassador? Beware of scams!

Fraudulent emails are currently circulating in the name of Visa. You are supposedly selected to participate in a programme to promote Visa's services. The company promises you €1,000,000 on a Visa card in your name. You are asked to provide a whole host of personal details. Don't do it, it's a scam.

The e-mail also emphasises the urgency of the situation, because if you don't respond immediately, the offer is no longer valid. Always remember that if the offer is too good to be true, it is not.

What can I do?
Have you been swindled?
  • If you lose money or become the victim of extortion, we advise you to report it to the police. You can report it to the local police where you live. 
  • Contact your bank and/or Card Stop on 078 170 170 if you have passed on banking information, if money is disappearing from your bank account or if you have transferred money to a fraudster. This way, any fraudulent transactions can be blocked.
