Can your premium bonds be stolen? NS&I advises how to keep your money safe | Personal Finance | Finance

Buying Premium Bonds offers the chance for savers to win between £25 and £1million tax free in their monthly draw. 

However, over two million Premium Bonds prizes, roughly worth £74million have gone unclaimed. 

This can be due to savers forgetting about their bonds, losing their holders number or can’t be reached by NS&I because of outdated details but regardless of the reasoning, it showcases how few people check in on their bonds. 

Essentially, the less savers are aware of where their bonds are and what they are doing, the more likely they are to fall for scammers’ scare tactics.
