Scams and Cybercrime

Fraud and Cybercrime

As you know from our emails and notices at the monthly meetings, we have been trying to keep you alerted to the growing trend of fraud and cybercrime in the country. It is certainly nothing to be alarmed about as long as you are aware it exists and take necessary precautions. We have tried to get a suitable speaker but without success so we will tackle it by keeping you informed.

The BBC's You and Yours Programme has had regular features about people who have been conned and they have produced an excellent article from which the following was taken......

"According to the Office for National Statistics, in 2015 there were an estimated 7.6 million cases of fraud and cybercrime in England and Wales alone. It means most people in the UK are now far more likely to be conned than burgled.

The frauds I’ve reported on are always built on trust. While we should not live in fear, by learning to spot if someone is not as trustworthy as they seem, many more of us could avoid being caught out."

If you click on the link below you will find articles and videos on Sophisticated Scams, Means of Attack, How to Defend Yourself and How to Spot a Scam.
