A worldwide pandemic on the scale of Coronavirus can lead to new types of scam activity. You may have already seen reports of fraudulent activity around the sale of face masks, hand sanitiser, testing kits and track and trace services.

When it comes to financial services, scam activity is more nuanced. With that in mind, the UK Regulator is urging consumers to be vigilant for scams that could appear over the coming months. Unfortunately, scammers are sophisticated, opportunistic and will try to get personal details or money from victims in many ways. They tend to target people who are more vulnerable or susceptible to being scammed, particularly in the current climate with many more people being at home.

In this regard, the UK Regulator has issued detailed guidance which we would encourage you to read.

If you have any questions, concerns or suspect that you have been contacted in connection with a scam, please do contact your Relationship Manager or, if you prefer, send an email to LondonAdmin@emiratesnbd.com. You can also report scams to the UK Regulator by calling their helpline on 0800 111 6768 or by using their reporting form.
