Criminals are pretending to be Vanquis

Criminals are targeting our customers and pretending to be our Vanquis colleagues. They are trying to persuade you to share important security details like your credit card details or your one-time passcode, so they can steal your money.


We may send you a one-time passcode if you register for the Vanquis App, for Online Banking or if you register your card for Apple Pay or Google Pay. But, if we contact you by text, phone or email, we will never ask you to share the one-time passcode, your credit card number, CVV or your PIN number. You should only type your one-time passcode into our mobile app, online banking, Apple Wallet or Google Wallet using a secure device have in your possession at the time.


Vanquis will never ask you to download any additional software or apps, only criminals will ask you to do this as it would allow them to view your device content or your Vanquis app.


Criminals spend hours researching you for their scams, hoping you'll let your guard down for just a moment. Stop and think. It could protect you and your money.

  1. Stop: Taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe. Never share your card details, PIN or one-time passcode with anyone, not even Vanquis staff.
  2. Challenge: It is ok to reject, refuse or ignore requests. Only a criminal will try to rush or panic you.
  3. Protect: Contact us immediately if you think you are a victim of a scam and provided your card information of OTP.
