Protect your accounts from Fraudsters.
Hackers and scammers are always looking for ways to get your bank account information. Staying proactive and following some simple safety tips can help you protect your bank account.
Signs That It’s a Scam
Scammers pretend to be from an organization you know or impersonate someone you know.
Scammers often pretend to be contacting you on behalf of the government. They might use a real name or make up a name that sounds official.
Some pretend to be from a business you know, like a utility company, a tech company or the bank.
Scammers will also pose as a family member or friend.
Be extra cautious in situations like this as fraudsters will prey on your emotions.
Scammers say there’s a problem or a prize.
Scammers pressure you to act immediately.
Scammers tell you to pay in a specific way.
What You Can Do to Avoid a Scam
Don’t give your personal or financial information in response to a request that you didn’t expect. Legitimate organizations won’t call, email, or text to ask for your personal information.
Resist the pressure to act immediately. Legitimate businesses will give you time to make a decision. Anyone who pressures you to pay or give them your personal information is a scammer.
Know how scammers tell you to pay. Never pay someone who insists you pay using a money transfer service.
Stop and talk to someone you trust. Before you do anything else, tell someone — a friend, a family member, a neighbour — what happened.

The price of fuel in Uganda has risen, this means you have to dig deeper into your pockets to foot this bill. Here are some fuel saving tips to reduce your trips to the fuel station.
• Keep constant speeds and allow the car coast to a halt approaching major stops. Do you know that for every time you accelerate and apply the brakes immediately, you just waste that fuel?
• Plan your route: knowing where you are going can save you fuel you spend being lost.
• Keep your car properly maintained and serviced at all times , changing the fuel filter when due and use good engine oil.
• Don’t let the vehicle idle for more than a minute.
• Lighten your load. Think carefully about what you need on a journey. If you do not need something, do not pack it.
