|The Trust has been made aware of a number of scams and attempted scams on u3as. |
One of these takes the form of a phone call from someone purporting to be the Fraud Department of your bank, saying they have noticed suspicious transactions on the account. They may have authentic sounding details, names of Trustees etc, that make it sound genuine. The upshot is they are trying to get you to transfer the balance to another account to avoid further fraudulent transactions. Please be aware that this is a scam and your bank will never ask you to do this.
This is only one form scams take and we would advise you to be extra vigilant at this time, and if you are unsure to end the call and to phone your bank directly to check, using a number you know to be genuine.
