SCAMS AWARENESS FORTNIGHT 13TH - 26TH JUNE

SCAMS AWARENESS FORTNIGHT 13TH - 26TH JUNE

Scams Awareness Fortnight will be running from Monday 13 June - Sunday 26 June 2022 and is an annual campaign run by Citizens Advice with the Consumer Protection Partnership (CPP). It's all about creating a network of confident, #ScamAware consumers who are able to recognise a scam, take the right action when dealing with a scam and talk about their experiences to raise awareness and help others.

This year's campaign will focus on scams and the cost-of-living crisis. With many people facing increased financial pressures, there is a high chance that scammers will take advantage of this, so it is of vital importance to equip consumers. More »

Spam emails, 'suspicious activity' alerts from your bank, news stories about data breaches – unfortunately, scams and fraud seem to have become part of our daily lives. They can and do affect anyone and can cause a lot of harm.

Estimates from the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) suggest there were 5.1 million fraud offences in the year ending Sept 2021. Additionally, Citizens Advice found in the first 5 months of 2021 more than two thirds of adults (36 million) had been targeted by a scam.

With many people facing increased financial pressures, there is a high chance that scammers will take advantage of this. For example, we've already seen instances of scammers pretending to be energy companies offering "too good to be true" deals and others sending out phishing emails offering fake government rebates.

Anyone can fall victim to a scam. People of all ages and backgrounds get scammed. It's important to be on your guard - if you're not sure about something, take your time and get advice.

If you think someone might be trying to scam you, it's important to act straight away. If you need advice and support you can call the Citizens Advice consumer service on 0808 223 1133 or visit www.citizensadvice.org.uk. You should also report scams or suspected scams to Action Fraud. » Less
