Fraud awareness

Fraud awareness

Please be vigilant about an increased risk of cybercrime. Simon Stanyer, local counter fraud specialist, tells us: “We’re all being exposed to more phishing emails and telephone calls requesting our personal information which may then be used to access our finances or other personal information. Recent examples at the Trust have included fake calls claiming to be from Vodafone. Please be aware that your personal information is your responsibility to keep safe but please, if you have unusual calls from your mobile phone provider, bank, or other organisation, please take five seconds to step back and think why they want this information. If you have any concerns please contact me, as your local counter fraud specialist on 07747 565 380 or via simon.stanyer@kpmg.co.uk. All calls are treated with the strictest confidence.
