Society holds online safety event in Halifax

Colleagues at the Yorkshire Building Society branch in Halifax held an event providing people with hints and tips to stay safe online and how not to become victims of fraud. The branch, on Corn Market, hosted the event for members of the public and customers which was also attended by Halifax MP Holly Lynch. She said:

It was great to attend the workshop at the Yorkshire Building Society in Halifax on educating people about staying safe online. The presentation by their staff really helped people to understand what scams to look out for, how to stay safe online and how to register for online banking.


This event was the first in a series of events the Halifax branch will be holding this year, with another to follow in the summer teaching financial education to children, parents and grandparents over the school holidays.

Lizzie Szpara, branch manager at Yorkshire Building Society in Halifax, said:

We were really pleased with our event to help people register for, manage and protect their finances online. We ran through some of the scams that target customers to try and educate them on ways to try and keep their money safe. We also showed tutorial videos on how to work our online accounts.

The Halifax branch underwent an extensive refurbishment in March this year, and is one of the first of Yorkshire Building Society’s branches to trial new concepts which aim to improve the experience of the Society’s customers.
