Hello Lindsay

Welcome to the community

Can you clarify this bit please?

Hi Lindsey

Not quite sure what you mean

If it’s that you think you’ve been scammed by a monzo account customer then send full details to help@monzo.com

Sorry no idea why that’s sent like that… I’ve been a victim of fraud and the bank account I transferred stupidly was a Monzo account.

Very sorry to hear that

As @Rat_au_van says above the best option, supposing you are not yourself a Monzo account holder, is to use the email address, providing any details you can

Hope it gets sorted
