People who are worried about becoming victims of fraud are being helped by a new series of videos being launched by Nationwide Building Society.
Card and online banking fraud are estimated to cost over £500 million every year1 across the industry and Nationwide, which is at the forefront of initiatives to protect consumers from the risk of financial crime, has launched three online videos explaining how individuals can safeguard themselves against fraud.
The videos show how fraudsters try to get access to people's money and bank accounts and what they can do to prevent this.
There are videos and articles on:
