“It has been brought to our attention that over the last few days some fake messages have been sent out impersonating Paym and asking customers to follow a link to receive money.

“This is not legitimate; a genuine Paym message won’t ask you to register to collect funds already sent.

“Copies of genuine Paym text messages can be found at https://paym.co.uk/received-a-text/.

“If you think you may have fallen for an online scam, you should contact your bank using the phone number on the back of your debit card, or printed on a bank statement.”
