Pension scams and
online security

Fraudsters target your money, data and identity in sophisticated ways. Fraud is about 40% of all crime in the UK and about 3 million people are victims of fraud each year. It’s become so common that you’re more likely to be a victim of fraud or a cyber scam than any other offence. Businesses are also targeted.

Report fraud

Think you’ve been a victim? If your Nest account has been subject to fraud or you’ve accidentally given away your details, tell us straight away and report it to Action Fraud.
