To help keep your payments safe, if we ever change our details we’ll let you know by letter. We’ll also put the information on our website so you can check it anytime. Please be aware that we’ll never use email, SMS or phone to tell you our banking details have changed. If you’re contacted this way and asked to change payment details, do not act on it as it is a scam. If you ever have concerns about this, contact us or check our ways to pay page.

Keeping your account safe

  • If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t so you should give us a call.
  • Always take reasonable steps to keep your log-in details, password, security codes and other security information secret at all times.
  • You should memorise your passwords and keep them secret.
  • If you fail to receive a statement or any other expected financial information, you should contact us immediately.
  • You should check statements and transaction information regularly and alert us to any irregularities.
