Despite having to stay cautious to stop the propagation of the Covid-19, we also have to watch out for scammers who use this unstable situation for their own benefits to scam some cash out of Nottingham locals.
Criminals usually fake to be calling from the NHS to ask for personal and financial information or even fake to be Nottingham City Council officials in whom the victims trust and easily fall for the trick.
To stop this criminal act, the Citizen Advice organises their annual Scams Awareness Fortnight in order to help and educate people on how to spot a scammer and how to protect themselves and their loved ones from being played. The campaign runs for two weeks from 15-28 th of June, providing enough time for people learn about the tricks and what to do if they meet with these scammers.
On our Mojatu.com website we collected all the necessary resources that includes how to know if you are being scammed, how to get your money back after a scam, how to report a scam, and how to provide emotional support for those who have been tricked. These documents are not only important for those who wish to take an active role in the Scams Awareness Fortnight but for everyone who wants to be prepared when something bad like this happens to them.
