Preventing People from Becoming Victims – National Programme to Stop Scams during COVID-19 Pandemic

09-Apr-2020

                           

The National Trading Standards (NTS) Scams Team has produced some helpful materials to help promote scams awareness around coronavirus (COVID-19) scams at this difficult time.

Friends Against Scams (FAS) is a NTS Scams Team initiative which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of fraud by empowering people to take a stand against scams.

FAS is designed to inspire action, highlight the scale of the problem, change the perceptions of why people fall for scams and make scams a community, regional and national topic.

By attending a Friends Against Scams awareness session or completing the online learning, anyone can learn about the different types of scams and how to spot and support a victim.

With increased knowledge and awareness, people can make scams part of everyday conversation with their family, friends and neighbours, which will enable them to protect themselves and others.
