New World does not use pop-up banners and we would not ask you for your personal banking details. This is a common sign of a scam. Here are some tips to avoid email or internet scams:

  • Be aware of who is asking for your personal information and what you are signing up for.
  • Only give your email address to people and organisations you know and trust.
  • Look out for tick boxes, or links to a privacy policy so you can avoid your information being sold to other marketing organisations. 

New World takes your privacy very seriously and we assure our customers that their data has been and remains secure. If you think that you are being targeted by a scammer contact us.
