Be on your guard - beware of fraudsters
Ensure that you are logging onto a genuine Halifax site and not being duped by scam emails. Take a look at Online
Security to find out more.
Dear Halifax customer,
Like other UK based banks, we are currently seeing very large numbers of "phishing emails" in circulation. Many of these
look as if they are from Barclays, typically encouraging you to click a link and type in your logon details. Such attempted
frauds only work if you click that link, and you then type in your full security details and contact information.
Please remember: We never ask you to enter your Credit Card information and contact information on the Internet or over
the phone. To learn how to protect yourself against "phishing" and other "identity theft" attempts, please spend a few
minutes to upgrade to our latest security :
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for you co-operation.
