    Keep your eSafeID codes safe

    The codes from your eSafeID device are unique to you and no-one, not even the Bank should ever ask you to share these.

    If you are contacted by someone who is requesting these codes it’s likely a fraudster!

    You should end the call immediately and report this to us using our 24 hour emergency telephone number 0800 917 7918.

    Stop: Taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.

    Challenge: Could it be fake? It's ok to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.

    Protect: Contact your bank immediately if you think you've fallen for a scam and report it to Action Fraud.
