- You can forward fraudulent e-mails to [email protected].
- You can also send suspicious text messages. To do this, simply take a screenshot and send it to [email protected].
- The content of your report will then be processed automatically.
Have you clicked on a suspicious link?
- If you have, leave the fields blank and cancel all interaction.
- NEVER give out personal codes.
- If you have provided a password that you use elsewhere, change it immediately.
- If you have clicked on a link that opens a website where you have to submit your bank details, first check that it is actually your bank's website. If you have the slightest doubt, do not make the payment.
Have you been scammed?
- If you have lost money or been 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 disappears from your bank account or if you have transferred money to a fraudster. This way, any fraudulent transactions can be blocked.
