Consumers are being warned to be aware the Shawbrook Bank has been cloned by fraudsters and to be careful when depositing money with the bank.

According to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the fake bank does not have a website, but fraudsters have been contacting people out of the blue claiming to be Shawbrook Bank and offering highly competitive rates.

Fraudsters have been using the name Shawbrook Bank Ltd, which is a clone of the authorised bank, along with the telephone number 0127 742 4925 and the email address shawbrook@promotionalenquiries.co.uk. Consumers who think they have been approached by this unauthorised bank, or any other cloned firm, should contact the FCA on 0800 111 6768 or email consumer.queries@fca.org.uk.

Consumers can continue banking with the authorised Shawbrook Bank, however it is important to ensure that any money deposited is done with the authorised bank and not the clone. The authorised Shawbrook Bank details are:

Address: Lutea House, Warley Hill Business Park, The Drive, Great Warley, Brentwood, EssexCM13 3BE

Telephone: +44 1277751110
