How to stay safe

If an online offer seems too good to be true, it often does.

Always check to see if an offer or advertisement is from the company it claims to be.

You can do this by checking spelling, sitelinks and looking at the company’s official website.

Never give out personal information online to strangers and use extreme caution with where you enter your banking information.
