Scam Awareness fortnight

Written by on 16 June 2021

People in Staffordshire are being urged to spot the signs of scams, report them and look out for those who may become victims themselves.

 Scams Awareness Fortnight is underway and the County Council’s Trading Standards team is reminding people to be aware of the risk of scams whether online, on the phone, through the post or on the doorstep.

 Each year millions of people in the UK fall prey to scammers, though it is thought less than five per cent report them. An estimated 10 billion is also lost to scammers each year.
