@NAT - Thomas Cook "refund" scams on the rise

We are aware of reports on social media that criminals are using the Thomas Cook liquidation as an opportunity to lure victims into financial scams.

Members of the public have reported receiving calls and messages offering “refunds” by people purporting to be associated with, or acting on behalf of Thomas Cook.
We would urge people to be vigilant of unsolicited calls, texts or social media messages that ask for personal or financial details, and not to automatically click on the links in unexpected emails.
Legitimate organisations will never contact you out of the blue and ask for your PIN, card details, or full banking passwords. If you get a call or message asking for these, it’s a scam.
Remember, your bank or the police will never ask you to transfer money out of your account, or ask you to hand over cash for safe-keeping.
