Barclays will be holding a fraud awareness event next month, aimed at keeping Norfolk’s bank accounts safe from rogue traders.

The event will see staff advising customers on how to keep their money safe, as well as teaching attendees about digital banking, paying bills, and online shopping.

Chris Channell, deputy community banking director for Norfolk and Suffolk, said: “Fraudsters can try to trick people in many different ways, at a cash machine, by email, text, phone or on-line often posing as somebody from a trusted organisation.

“We work closely with both the Police and Trading Standards and our branch colleagues continue to be vigilant and will often question customers if they feel they could be under duress when asking to withdraw large sums of money, especially the elderly.”

The event will be held at 12 Old Market, Wisbech on October 12 from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
