Scam alert!

Recently we have had 9 instances of scam activity reported to us by non-clients who have had unauthorised amounts withdrawn from their bank accounts.  These scammers are using the reference ‘BSN & Co’ and transactions usually involve small amounts, possibly as a test run for future larger amounts.

We have assured these non-clients that we do not have any access or authority to debit bank accounts whether clients or non-clients.  It is not a practice adopted by BS Newton and Co, nor BSN & Co.  It never has been and never will be.

What can you do?

In each case reported to us, we have advised victims to immediately contact their bank to report the scam for recovery of the debited amount and to block further withdrawals of this nature.

We also urge our current clients to closely monitor their bank account transactions, in case the scam becomes more widespread.
