Scams Awareness Month - June 2018

Published: Tuesday, 5 June 2018

Telford & Wrekin Safeguarding Adults Board is taking part in Scams Awareness Month throughout June 2018.

Almost three quarters of people have been targeted by scammers in the last 2 years either via mail, phone calls, text messages, emails, online and face to face.

Over a third of people have been targeted 5 times or more.

It is estimated that £10.9 billion is lost to scams and fraud every year.

Don’t be the next statistic, be a step ahead of the scammers and be #scamaware.

To learn more about scams and to help raise awareness, we invite you to take a stand against scams and check out the National Trading Standards Scams Team 'Friends Against Scams' campaign.
