Please be aware of cyber crime. Hine Downing Financial Services will not take responsibility if you transfer money to a wrong bank account. If you receive an email from Hine Downing Financial Services requesting your bank details, or an email providing you with bank details, please contact your Adviser immediately to clarify the position as we do not use email to send or receive bank details.
It is clear that there is an increasing risk of emails being hacked and false bank details being provided to firms. For this reason, all clients should send their bank details to us by post or provide them in writing at a face-to-face meeting with your adviser (such as by providing a recent bank statement containing the relevant bank details) if they are ever requested. Hine Downing Financial Services will not use bank details sent by email for payments or receipts to avoid any possible email fraud.
