Need To Call Your Bank? Many Can Now Dial 159 For Safety

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Money Saving Expert.

This is the first paragraph.

Consumers wanting to avoid financial fraud now have a secure and easy-to-remember phone number to contact their banks on in order to avoid painful scams. It could prove to be the safest way for many to contact their provider if they have suspicions and concerns about their accounts, or even if they’re struggling to find a customer services number.

I like this anti-fraud measure and just heard it from Martin Lewis, who founded Money Saving Expert on the radio.

Many years ago before mobile phones, my late wife had her handbag snatched. This would surely help in a situation like this, as you can at least get in touch with your bank from a phone.
