Scams Awareness Month – Are you scam aware?
This June marks Scams Awareness Month, a time to highlight types of scams, how they operate and how to protect yourself.
Almost 500,000 cases of consumer fraud were recorded in the UK over the last 13 months with a reported loss of £2.5 billion*.
Scammers are continually creating new, often highly sophisticated scams, using a wider range of platforms to catch out more and more people – especially via online shopping, personal banking, and investment fraud scams.
Scams can be difficult to recognise, but there are things you can look out for.
