Keeping your details safe

Don't be a victim of fraud

Help keep yourself safe from fraudsters by reducing their chances of getting hold of your information.

If you are ever unsure, we urge you to take your time, don’t be rushed. A genuine organisation will never rush you to take action on your account

 Protect yourself: 

Never share a Santander One Time Passcode (OTP) with another person. Not even a Santander employee.
Never download software or let anyone log on to your computer or other devices remotely following or during a cold call.
Never enter your Online Banking details after clicking on a link in an email or text message.


Important note

If you do give out your personal and security details or information, you provide a fraudster with everything they need to take money from your account and we may not be able to recover this for you. Taking care of your personal details and information is also included in the terms and conditions of your account.

If you think you’ve been a victim of a fraud or a scam, or are concerned that you may have revealed personal or security details or information, please contact us immediately on 0800 9 123 123.

Always make sure the mobile number you have registered with us is up to date, you can check and update your mobile number in Online Banking.
