Stay Safe, Stay Aware

Beat the Scammers is for anyone aged over 50 who receive fraudulent/nuisance telephone calls and would benefit from getting advice and practical suggestions on how to deal with them.  Older people are targeted ruthlessly over the phone resulting in large amounts of money being obtained fraudulently.
