The Wales Against Scams Partnership (WASP) would like to invite you to a national Scams Summit on 28 September 2018 at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea.
WASP is working to help better protect people in Wales from scams and fraud and to support victims. We believe that Wales can lead in presenting a united front against scams and making itself a hostile country to scammers.
The summit will bring together key stakeholders in the fight against financial abuse and will seek to identify the scale of the problem and identify how agencies and interested parties can work together to protect people from unsolicited calls in Wales.
The Summit will be a full day event including keynote speeches, a plenary session and workshops. It will be chaired by Mike Hedges AM for Swansea East and Chair of the Cross Party Group on Ageing, and Alun Davies, Minister for Local Government and Public Services. The Welsh Government perspective.
The summit will:
- identify how to empower citizens in Wales to avoid becoming a victim of nuisance calls, mail or doorstep crime
- identify what actions the Welsh Government and UK Government can take to reduce the problem
- consider what actions the telephony companies, internet service providers and postal services can take
- consider how WASP members and other interested parties can work together to limit the impact of nuisance calls, mail or doorstep crime.
