These videos were produced for HSBC's Fraud campaign, "Fraud: Don’t miss a trick" highlighting how fraudsters use scams.
Phone scams, or vishing, are when a fraudster calls pretending to be your bank or another trusted organisation. They can even make their call appear to come from a number you know and trust. This is known as Phone Number Spoofing.
Online fraud is on the increase. Fraudsters use sophisticated tactics to access your financial details and passwords, creating bogus links, retailer web pages, as well as fake pop-ups.
A Romance scam is when somebody you have never met in person pretends to have feelings for you and then tricks you into sending gifts or money.
