This Morning’s Martin Lewis fumes ‘how dare they’ as he’s targeted by scammers trying to drain his bank account

THIS Morning’s Martin Lewis has revealed he was targeted by scammers trying to drain his bank account, as he fumed: “How dare they?” 

The money-saving expert spends his work life warning others about scam artists – but had a run-in with one himself.

Martin, 49, furiously ranted about getting texted by crooks claiming they were bank officials from HSBC.

Sharing an image of the message, Martin ranted: “How dare they. Trying to #SCAM me! ME! I don’t have an HSBC account and that’s not a link to HSBC anyway.”

He joked: “DON’T THEY KNOW WHO I AM! (clearly not).”

Earlier this year Martin was forced to warn his followers about a scam alert from Action Fraud claiming to be backed by him.

The post – which has been being widely shared on Facebook – warns of a new “sophisticated scam” involving fraudsters posing as O2, Vodafone and other mobile networks.

The post says that the scam warning comes from Action Fraud and Martin Lewis, but both the City of London police and Martin himself have said that it is nothing to do with them.

The untrue post reads: “Straight from the City of London Police fraud team – Extremely sophisticated scam going about this week, involving all banks.

“You get a message saying a payment hasn’t been taken e.g O2, Vodafone, 3, Giff Gaff or EE and to click here. As soon as you touch it your money is gone.”

The 49-year-old often appears on This Morning
Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby

A follow up post says that the scam has been confirmed by Money Saving Expert’s Martin Lewis, however this is not true.

Martin tweeted: “WARNING: This viral scam alert’s nowt to do with me. I’ve NOT talked about it.

“Always be scamaware, but this sounds nonsense. If u do get scam texts/emails it describes, it’s likely phishing for data, so delete. Yet the scam alert’s no better.”
