  • 1) Scam emails about Coronavirus New Message

    01 May  


    People are sending scam emails about the coronavirus. They can pretend to be us, other companies or people with advice on the outbreak. If you get an email about the virus that asks for a payment or your banking details, it’s a scam.

    From time to time we may need to send you an email. But we’ll never send one that asks you to enter your login, account or personal details. 

    Our emails will always greet you personally using your:

    • title
    • surname, and
    • the last three digits of your business postcode.

    Scam emails can look genuine. To protect your business, you should only click on a link or attachment you know is safe.

    If you get a scam email, please forward it to us at emailscams@lloydsbank.co.uk then delete it.

    You can find real life examples of scam emails on our Security Hub.

    3) Outdated Browsers - Ensuring your browser is up to date New Message    

    29 May   


    Internet Explorer version 6, 7 and 8 are no longer supported by Microsoft. Unsupported versions no longer receive security patches and over time continued use of unsupported browsers will make you more vulnerable to cyber security threats.


    Our analysis shows that the vast majority of our clients are using supported versions of Internet Explorer with LloydsLink online. However, if you are using an older version or are unsure about this, the following pages from the Government Get Safe Online website will help you to upgrade:


    https://www.getsafeonline.org/software/web-browsers/
    https://www.getsafeonline.org/protecting-your-computer/update-your-browser


    You can check which version of Internet Explorer you have by clicking on ‘Help’ and then ‘About Internet Explorer’ from your browser bar. The version will then be displayed.


    The LloydsLink online system requirements are summarised here

     

     

    4) How to stay safe from scam calls New Message    

    01 May   


    People can call and pretend to be from Lloyds Bank or other well-known companies. They may say there’s a problem and you need to move money to another account. This is a scam.


    Even if a call looks like it’s from one of our numbers, we’ll never ask you to move money to another account, or for your banking details.


    If you get a call like this, it’s best to hang up the phone. Make sure the line is clear or use another phone if you need to call us.


    For more advice on how to protect your business please visit our Security Centre.

    Effective 31st March 2020, Israel will introduce new requirements on international payments sent to the country making the inclusion of the beneficiary IBAN mandatory.

    When making an international payment to Israel, please ensure you have included the full IBAN number for the beneficiary account.

    7) We’re starting to introduce payment name checks  New Message    

    14 February   


    When you receive Faster Payments or CHAPS payments we are now starting to confirm your account name with the person or business paying you. This is called Confirmation of Payee(COP).

     

    How will it affect people who are paying me? 

    It’s important that you give people who are paying you your correct account or trading name, as well the sort code and account number. This is the account name shown on your bank statement. If they use a name that doesn’t match, it may cause delays in receiving their payments whilst they confirm your details.

    Most major UK banks will also start checking names soon.

     

    What should I do now? 

    Always give people who are paying you your correct account or trading name, as well as your sort code and account number. Check that you’ve put the correct name on invoices you send to your customers, so they don’t experience any problems when paying you.

    There’s no change to how you make payments in LloydsLink Online.
