Scam Awareness Month is Coming

15th May 2018  until 1st July 2018 

In June Citizens Advice are working partnership with National Trading Standards, Chartered Trading Standard Institute and The Department for Business to deliver Scam Awareness Month 2018. This campaign aims to reduce the risk and impact of scams by raising awareness and encouraging people to take action recognising, reporting and talking about the issues. Almost three-quarters (72%) 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. So during Scam Awareness Month we will be visiting organisations and setting up promotional stalls around Hull & The East Riding to chat to local residents about how they can avoid being scammed and how to report any suspicious activity. Follow us on Twitter @HullandERCAB to find out more.
