Santander’s customer warning
The people carrying out the sophisticated scam are “number spoofing”, says the bank.
Santander account holders and customers are being told to exercise caution in the face of a new scam. The sophisticated scam has triggered a Santander warning to be vigilant after a bogus text was seemingly sent by the bank within the past week. The text is appearing in the bank’s own feed on people’s phones, which is causing a massive risk and putting unwitting account holders in danger of fraud.
Staff are warning that the text, which says it has detected “suspicious activity”, is a scam. Coventry Telegraph
