Stop, Report, Talk

10th-23rd June is the National Scams Awareness campaign, and this year’s theme is ‘Stop, Report, Talk’. The campaign brings Consumer Protection Partners together to take a united stand against scams by working with national and local organisations, including Citizens Advice, Trading Standards and the Police. 

Campaigns like National Scams Awareness are so important to help raise awareness, educate and protect people from falling victim to scams, particularly the most vulnerable in our society who are seen as easy targets. I would like to encourage victims to speak up and ensure that these crimes are reported so that perpetrators can be brought to justice and we can help to prevent other people falling victim in the future.
