Scammers have been cheating people with a range of clever schemes to steal their cash and wealth. With the Covid-19 pandemic, fraudsters have been taking advantage of this situation to carry out scams.
Criminals have been faking to be NHS, Nottingham City Council or even as Government officials and they are asking for personal and financial information to scam their victims. Some are using the test and trace App to scam people while other offer vouchers and discounts to unsuspecting public.
To stop these criminal acts, the Citizen Advice has launched the Scams Awareness Fortnight 2020 to help and educate people on how to spot a scammer and how to protect themselves and their loved ones from being preyed upon. The campaign runs for two weeks from 15th to 28th of June. It will provide people with information about the various scams and what to do if one is confronted by these scammers.
