Image 4

Fraudsters aren’t fussy, they’ll pick on anyone

Did you know that in just one year, one in 17 adults were the victims of fraud? Nobody is immune from fraud. The criminals behind it target people online and in their homes, often emotionally manipulating their victims before they steal money or personal data.

But there is something we can do. By staying vigilant and always taking a moment to stop, think and check whenever we’re approached, we can help to protect ourselves and each other from fraud.

And now, the Home Office has launched a campaign to tackle fraud, providing advice to the public, and for organisations to share. The campaign includes an online fraud hub that will provide concise, simple-to-follow advice.  It will also signpost victims to relevant organisations for further advice and support. 

The campaign and its website provide useful advice in the following areas:

  • Are you at risk of fraud
  • How to spot fraud
  • Protecting yourself from fraud
  • Recovery from fraud
  • How to report fraud

It’s worth going on line having a look to see how you can protect yourself from fraud.
