Scams Awareness Month

15th July 2016

Scams Awareness Month

This July is Scams Awareness Month 2016. We’re encouraging everyone to take the following three steps to tackle scams and protect themselves and others:

  • GET advice from the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline by calling 03454 04 05 06, who can provide advice and pass details on to trading standards.
  • TELL a friend, neighbour or relative about any scams you become aware of.

Whether you’re an individual consumer looking to protect yourself and family from scams or an organisation or group representing consumers, your efforts during Scams Awareness Month 2016 are important because they will help spread the message that scams can be tackled if we take our time to spot the signs and share what we learn with others.

We’ve put together a leaflet which you can download here about the common scams we’ve seen in Medway recently and what to do if you encounter them yourself. By taking positive action and making yourself aware of the tricks scammers use you won’t be flustered and rushed by them into taking decisions you’ll later regret.
