You will never be asked to move money to a 'safe account'.</li><li>Check for IDs and get them verified – genuine officials will be more than happy to wait.</li><li>Pick strong passwords when setting up accounts online and do not use the same password across sites.</li><li>Do not click on any unknown links in emails and use two factor authentications. </li><li>Make sure your social media accounts are set up correctly – review your privacy settings to ensure your profile is locked down. </li><li>Use antivirus and make sure that your software and operating system is kept up to date.</li><li>Always back up your most important data such as your photos and key documents.</li></ul><p> </p><p>Station Manager Paul Gair, who works in the NFRS Prevention team, said: "Scammers are always coming up with new ideas.
