Keep your Christmas shopping safe

Whether it’s getting the Christmas list ticked off, that last minute gift for someone special or a treat for ourselves, most of us will be buying more online this festive season.

It’s fantastic being able to take advantage of the convenience, choice and value brought by the internet, but unfortunately it is also a favourite haunt of fraudsters, vying to take advantage of the fact that you have so many distractions in the lead-up to Christmas.

That is why it’s especially important to safeguard yourself, your family and finances when you’re buying online. For top online shopping tips and to find out more, visit our website at www.getsafeonline.org

If you’ve lost money to an online shopping scam, tell your bank and report it as a crime to Action Fraud (for England, Wales and Northern Ireland). By doing this, you’ll be helping to prevent others from becoming victims of cyber crime.
