“The banking and finance industry works to tackle fraud on every front, through investing millions in advanced technology and working closely with the government and law enforcement to stop the criminal gangs responsible.”
Santander is one of the banks supporting the Take Five campaign. In a statement, the bank said: "Criminals are experts at impersonating people, organisations and the police. They spend hours researching you for their scams, hoping you’ll let your guard down for just a moment.
"Take Five urges you to stop and consider whether the situation is genuine – to stop and think if what you’re being told really makes sense."
