Bolton Tax Accountants Bury wish to advise you that a new Emergency Fraud Line has been launched so that individuals can report financial ‘scams’ as they take place.

The new Hotline can be accessed by dialling 159 this will be connected to their banks Fraud Prevention Service. This new initiative will be trialled for a year with fraud prevention experts hoping that 159 will become a universal number just as the 999-emergency number already is. It is hoped that this system will succeed in defeating fraud and will work across all phone networks and banks.

The Hotline is being promoted by ‘Stop Scams UK,’ which is a coalition of technology and banking businesses. Banks participating include Barclays, Lloyds (including Halifax and Bank of Scotland), Santander, Starling Bank and NatWest.


Commenting on the new Hotline, Gareth Shaw, Head of Money Which? Said: ‘This should be part of a range of solutions as no one solution on its own will be enough to tackle phone-enabled scams. That is why we also need action to prevent scams at source and to ensure that victims are treated fairly after they have been targeted.’

Phone-enabled scams sadly are not uncommon and are often targeted at the most vulnerable members of the community. By taking pro-active steps to reduce them it is hoped that this awful crime will stopped.
