Some of the latest scams to hit the island have resulted in huge financial loses for some and the fraudsters have been using loacl companies to appear more legitimate to victims on island.
One of these scams involves a text message sent from what appears to be Nat West and Lloyds banks and it tells the recipient that their debit card was used (usually on Amazon) for a certain amount. It then asks you to call their Fraud Prevention phone number (supplied in the text) if you don't recall this purchase. This number is a scam. DO NOT call it. If you do you will be asked for personal banking details such as account numbers and pin numbers and passwords.
NEVER give this information out, no bank will ever ask you for this over the phone.
The other scam we've been notified of is an email sent to the recipient asking for an invoice to be paid. The email seems to come from a legitimate sender / company but again this is a scam. DO NOT respond and DO NOT pay these invoices. If you think you owe a company a payment, contact that company yourself and ask them. Do not respond to links in emails or call numbers supplied in emails, they will be bogus numbers and you will be speaking to fraudsters on the other end of the line.
Always check and double check, these scams are very convincing. Be safe and be secure.
