Raj Panesar, manager of Exmouth’s TSB bank, has been giving a workshop on fraud prevention at a meeting of the town’s Age Concern charity.
An Exmouth bank manager has held a fraud awareness workshop to educate people of the latest tricks and scams.
Raj Panesar, manager of Exmouth’s TSB branch, in The Strand, visited an Age Concern meeting in the town to inform people about the bank’s ‘take five’ scheme.
The initiative encourages people to take time to stop, think and check before making payments and other financial transactions.
As part of the workshop, Raj taught people about common tactics like ‘vishing’ and ‘smishing’ where fraudsters make phone calls or send text messages to unsuspecting victims asking for private information.
The Exmouth bank manager said: “Our number one priority is protecting our customers’ money, so it was fantastic to talk to the people of Exmouth about fraud and how to avoid being a victim.
“No one is too smart to be scammed. But by taking time to stop, think and check before making a payment or doing your online banking, we can work together to beat the fraudsters.”
