Financial abuse

What's financial abuse?

Financial abuse is a form of domestic abuse which involves controlling a person's ability to acquire and manage their own money. Its main goal is to reinforce or create financial instability in relationships. It’s a pattern of threatening and degrading behaviour that restricts a victim’s financial freedom. Financial abuse can take a variety of forms. For example, financial control, exploitation, or manipulation. It can also happen in a range of different relationships, whether by intimate partners, family members, friends, or carers. Some of the signs which might help you recognise financial abuse include:
  • Being stopped from working and/or getting education
  • Being asked to account for every single thing you spent
  • Being stopped from accessing your financial account
  • Being controlled on how you spend your income
  • Debt or credit was taken in your name without your knowledge and permission

Know more about financial abuse

You can check UK Finance’s leaflet ‘It’s your money’ for further information on signs of financial abuse, advice on what to do if you become a victim, and where to get help. Also, you can see the report “The Cost of Covid-19: economic abuse throughout the pandemic” which was prepared by Surviving Economic Abuse — an organisation that raises awareness of economic abuse. The report contains a lot of information and examples of financial abuse that took place during the Covid-19 outbreak.

What's gambling?

Gambling comes in a variety of forms — whether it’s playing in the lottery, roulette, a gaming machine, using an online casino, or betting on your favourite sports team. Gambling might become a problem when you lose the ability to stop. At this moment, losses can start affecting many aspects of your life, including your career, finances, and relationships. Some signs indicating that gambling might be out of control include:
  • Spending more than you want on gambling
  • Struggling to find the money for basics
  • Taking out loans to cover gambling debts

Mental Health

How can Mental Health affect you?

Job insecurity, debt, and financial worries can all cause emotional distress. Feeling low, anxious, or stressed is a normal response. The Money and Mental Health institute revealed that over two thirds (67%) of employees who are struggling financially report at least one sign of poor mental health, which could affect their ability to function at work. Some of the signs that your mental health may be struggling might include:
  • Lack of sleep due to money worries
  • Anxiety to check bank statements or account balance
  • Lack of confidence to contact a bank or financial service provider
  • Fear to open bills or check important letters
  • Feeling hopeless and unable to manage money
  • Overspending and feeling guilty after spending

Fraud and scams

Ad scams

Unfortunately, fraudsters are always looking for new ways to get access to your account and your money. One common way they try to do this, is by placing ads on Google with phone numbers pretending to be Revolut customer support. To help keep you safe, we'll never send you a text message asking you to tap on a link. We'll also never ask you to send us sensitive information, such as your card details or your app's passcode. We do, however, have an automated phone number where you can block your card if it's been lost or stolen. This number is +442033228352. Check our blog page to find out more about:
  • How we detect and report fake ads/numbers
  • What to do if you're unsure

Phishing scams

Check our Security page for an overview of what a phishing scam is, how you can protect yourself, and how Revolut protects you.

Getting help

Power of Attorney

What's Power of Attorney?

In some situations, you may need/wish to give access to your account to someone else. To make this possible, you or the person to whom you may wish to give access to must submit a Power of Attorney (POA) to us. Learn more details about this document here.
