iBusiness Banking (iBB) Security Centre

   
 
In 2015, £755 million was lost to financial fraud, but we can all help to lower this figure by remembering one simple action – to stop and think.

That’s why the Take Five campaign – led by Financial Fraud Action UK Ltd - is encouraging the nation to do just that; to take time to stop, step back and think before they act.
