Online Safety, keeping you safe

We take online safety very seriously. We’re aware fraudsters have all sorts of ways of exploiting customers, including sending scam emails, surveys and texts that claim to be from retailers like ours or pose as legitimate brands on social media sites.

We’ve put together some FAQs to help you stay safe when using our website or app to make payments, book classes and your overall online exsperance with AZ Elite. 

How do I spot a scan email? 


Some fraudsters try to steal personal information (like bank card details or passwords) by pretending to be a legitimate website or posing as a trustworthy sender in an email or text (SMS) message. This is known as phishing (or smishing if sent via SMS). 

For example, a fraudulent email or text could be sent in the guise of a survey, competition or social media post. The aim is to trick you into visiting or submitting your details to an unsecure site.

Anyone can be targeted (not just AZ Elite customers) and these fraudulent emails or texts often request personal information or ask you to confirm information. 

It might be a scam when…

  • The message asks for personal information like your bank or payment details, username or password. We will never ask for any payment information via email. 

  • The sender’s email address looks suspicious. All AZ Elite's email will come directly from our app or our main email address: you are unsure for any reason please contact us directly, on 07564121310. 

  • There’s a sense of urgency, like a threat that your account will be closed unless you take immediate action.- We will never ask for anything to be done right away. All payments, and account set ups are done with a coach assisting you. If anything else is needed we will inform you with plenty of time. 

  • The message has a generic greeting such as ‘Dear customer.'- At AZ Elite we will always personalise emails with specifics, of you or your dancer.     

  • You weren’t expecting it.- If you receive something we will normally have said something in class or on our Facebook page reminding people that something is due to be sent. If they does not happy and you are unsure please contact us directly on; 07564121310. 


If you’re worried, don’t click on any links, open any attachments or forward to anyone else. 

You can always get information directly from the company's legitimate website rather than a link in an email.

Please let a coach know if you have received any suspicious emails so we can look into this. As your safety online is very important to us.
