    3 tips to help avoid fraud over the holidays

    As the festive season approaches, it’s the perfect time to ensure your finances and personal information is safeguarded and secure from any fraudulent activity. At RAMS we understand the importance of keeping you up to date with the latest security information and advice to help protect you, your family and friends. 

    Here are 3 useful tips on how to stay safe from phone, SMS and email fraud:  

    1. Protect your identity - never provide your personal or security details, including passwords, in response to an email, SMS or phone call, even if it looks legitimate. We’ll never ask for this information over these channels. 
    2. Use caution when opening unexpected emails or text messages. Don't open any suspicious links, pop-up windows and attachments as these may infect your computer with malware. Delete all suspicious emails. 
    3. Regularly check your accounts for any suspicious transactions.  


    If you believe your security has been compromised, contact us immediately on 13 RAMS, that’s 13 7267.

    About the author

    • Raymond

      Raymond A Ram is the RAMbassador for RAMS Financial Group. Raymond works with the RAMS team to bring simple, helpful and expert information on home loans and savings accounts to life with his down to earth and cheeky personality. He enjoys seeing everyday Australians turn their dreams of saving for a goal or getting into a home a reality. 

      Growing up in Goulburn, NSW, Raymond was brought up with good old-fashioned Aussie values of hard work and a fair go. It soon became apparent that Raymond wasn't content for the conventional path of grazing, producing the very best wool, and finding a nice sheep to settle down with. So it wasn't long before his passion for performing and his talent as a likeable larrikin shone through - landing him a few roles such as 'RAMlet'. He was even tipped to play RAM-bo at one point but chose to become star of the small screen instead as RAMbassador for RAMS. He now finds this role so much more rewarding.
