Customers at Isle of Man Bank are being warned of a scam which has been reported.

Fraudsters are calling people claiming to be from Visa saying the potential victims card has debited a foreign transaction and to press ‘1’ if they’ve not made the payment – if no number is pressed the call goes through to someone who’ll ask for the card sort code.

The bank is warning this is a bogus call and to hang up immediately if you receive it.

The organisation has taken to social media to warn people to remain vigilant.
