Heart Research UK – Potential fraudulent activity in the Philippines

12 July, 2019

We have been made aware that a small number of stolen card details from the Philippines have been tested under the guise of a £5 donation to Heart Research UK.

The persons affected have had no prior engagement or affiliation with Heart Research UK.

The details have been accessed through a third party and are not, and have not, been held, accessed or viewed by Heart Research UK at any time. Heart Research UK has been used as the name for these fraudulent transactions only.

Please rest assured that there has been no breach of Heart Research UK systems, and all data that we hold on our supporters, donors and suppliers is held securely, confidentially and in line with GDPR policy.

The individuals who have been affected in the Philippines have already been contacted by their banks and refunds have been issues to those affected.
