This morning we received an email. It asked for some very personal information about one of our clients.
We suspect it is a genuine request but still it made us uncomfortable. It is best these days to be suspicious.
The media has reported a significant fraud case involving an awful lot of data in respect of the bank HBOS.
Take care out there because there are a lot of people who are trying to exploit your data in order to scam or defraud you.
Challenge everything and only provide data to people/firms that you absolutely trust.
"It involved millions of documents, a lot of the material we had to look at was electronic and of course in this day and age the capacity for electronic media is huge,"
