Stay vigilant on social media

We’ve seen increased numbers of fake accounts pretending to be EMR on social media. These accounts use the EMR profile name, bio, profile image and cover photo.

To make sure you are talking directly to us:

  • Check the Twitter handle of the account. We use the handle @EastMidRailway on Twitter
  • Check how long the account has been open. We opened our account in October 2008 under our previous East Midlands Trains franchise
  • Our team will always sign off messages with our initials
  • We’ll never just ask for your bank details or a phone number through social channels or WhatsApp
    • If we’re handling your complaint, we’ve got multiple ways to process your compensation and we’ll offer you a choice
    • You can choose not to provide these details over social media. Instead you can email our customer services team at [email protected] or call our team on 03457 125678.

If you are unsure please do not give out any personal data. Contact us through out contacts page or through the Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp links above to be confident you are speaking to us directly.
