Coronavirus related scams
It’s more important than ever to stay alert to protect yourself and your family from fraudsters. Amid the global uncertainty, scammers have been looking to profiteer, impersonating the credible institutions that we have all turned to for help and advice during this challenging time.
A key trend is impersonating institutions the public associate with the coronavirus; the UK Government, Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) to trick victims into disclosing their personal data through malicious email attachments.
This can apply to the motor finance industry too and fraudsters may impersonate lenders and banks in order to obtain your personal data and financial details.
