Scams Awareness Campaign


Scams Awareness Campaign 2020 from 15-28 June. 

Are you #ScamAware ? This campaign is an opportunity for organisations nationally and locally to give people the skills and confidence to identify scams, share their experiences and take action by reporting suspicious activity. 

Citizens Advice research has shown that as many as 1 in 3 adults have been the victim of a scam since the coronavirus outbreak as more and more fraudsters take advantage of those in a vulnerable position.  You can find our more information on our website citizensadvice.org.uk or call one of our Scams Action advisers on 0808 250 5050.
