Please note that HOMEWORKS will never send you an e-mail requesting your password, credit card number or passport, personal identity card or social security number.

If you believe “phishers” have gained access to your personal or financial information, we recommend that you also change your password(s), alert your credit card service provider and bank and review credit card and bank account statements to check for unauthorised charges.
