Security and Safety Centre

Welcome to Standard Bank’s Security and Safety Centre

The safety and privacy of your personal information and banking details are very important to us. The more knowledge and protection you have, the safer your information and accounts will be. Let us help you stay informed and be aware of common fraudulent behaviors.

Scams

A scam is any fraudulent business or deceitful scheme performed by a dishonest individual, group or company attempting to take money or something of value from an innocent, and often unsuspecting, individual. Since the rise of the internet, new forms of online scams have emerged, and fraudulent behaviour has since increased. Ultimately, it is up to us to stay informed about common scamming activities and be aware and cautious when active and using confidential information online.

How to protect yourself

  • Always be alert: scammers are well known for luring their victims into believing they are from recognized institutions, such as Standard Bank. Do not share any personal information or account details via email or telephonically.
