Be Suspicious, Stay Alert

The 21st century has been a minefield of new attempts to fraudulently extort money, extract personally identifying information.

With the internet and telephone communications systems becoming advanced and available to all, the far reaches of the world are now able to quickly and effectively build networks of extortion and crime, directed toward the vulnerable.

As you would look out when in a strange neighbourhood, being vigilant toward strangers, you should now operate the same alertness online and over the telephone.  Anybody becoming impatient or aggressive toward your suspicions or alertness will very likely be attempting a scam.

If you are ever unsure, refuse your information and report to your institution, or the police.

Avem security and fraud team are available 24 hours per day for our clients and will never consider any report to be anything other than 100% reasonable.  +44 (0) 207 760 7587
