Friends Against Scams
At this time it is more important than ever to help protect the elderly and vulnerable from fraudsters and scammers seeking to exploit fears around the current pandemic.
Friends Against Scams is a National Trading Standards Scams Team initiative, which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering people to take a stand against scams.
Anybody can join Friends Against Scams and make a difference in their own way by raising awareness throughout your community.
Find out more at the Friends Against Scams website.
