Action Fraud scam watch
Did you know scams cost the UK economy £5-£10 Billion a year, with over 50% of people over 65 having already been targeted by scams; and only 5% of all scams reported?

This week’s scam and fraud warnings from Action Fraud:
  • Despite shops re-opening across the UK, many of us continue to shop online. Please remain vigilant and take extra care. Over £16 million has been lost to online shopping fraud during lockdown. For more information.
  • As venues prepare to re-open with social distancing measures in place following the coronavirus outbreak, we are urging people to be wary of fraudsters selling fake or non-existent tickets to events.
