Santander supported the take 5 campaign

Santander supported the take 5 campaign, raising awareness of fraud, ways to prevent & keep yourself safe, in conjunction with AGE UK

They are working with their charity partners Age U.K. In raising awareness of all types of fraud that can occur as well as educating people of all ages how to stay safe. Things like how to avoid scams, be it doorstep, mail, online or telephone scams. This includes identity theft, bogus callers & rogue traders. And the part banks can play in protecting our customers with online banking and the types of things that can occur. Emphasising that it is not only the elderly that get targeted, it's everyone.

Even though Thursday was a focus day, customers are free to call in and ask information about protecting themselves
