I need help I think I've been impacted by the Travelex data breach

There are reports in the media around Travelex data being held to ransom.

At this time Travelex have advised that there has been no breach of customer data.

We use industry-leading fraud defence technology to protect you and we work around the clock to monitor for suspicious activity on your account. You can monitor your account for any suspicious activity via Online/Mobile Banking if you think you have been affected by this issue.

The bank will NEVER ask you for your full PIN or password, card reader codes, or ask you to move money from your account.

Unfortunately, data theft incidents such as this are fairly common. Here are some simple steps you can take to better protect yourself:

  • Ensure that you don’t recycle your passwords - use a unique password for your bank account and don’t reuse this password with any other online service.
  • Over the coming weeks, you may receive emails, phone calls, or SMS messages relating to the Travelex data theft incident. If you receive such as message, it is worth taking a few moments to stop and check whether it is genuine.

For more advice about protecting yourself from fraud, please search for the UK bank-wide initiative, 'Take Five to Stop Fraud' online.

Further information on protecting yourself can also be found in our Fraud guide (opens in a new window)
