Scam Awareness Talk to local Group
Paul Edden, Managing Director, was invited to The Medical Institute, Hartshill, to provide advice and guidance on scam awareness. Paul who is a credited National Trading Standards “Scam Marshal” delivered the session to members of ‘North Staffordshire Health Services Retirement Fellowship’. Age UK reports that 43% of older people – almost five million people aged 65 and over – believe they have been targeted by scammers. Those with dementia are at particular risk. latest figures show that reported fraud incidents have increased by 17 per cent in a year to 3.8 million, people are now nearly three times more likely to be a victim of fraud than to be burgled and nearly 19 times more likely to be a victim of fraud than to be mugged. It's figures like these that make Home Instead so passionate on the subject, hence Paul getting out in the community and spreading the word.
