Be scam aware

The number of older people falling victims to scams has nearly doubled in the last 5 years according to BBC research. The number reported to police is thought to be only 5% of the total number of people falling victims to scammers.

We have put together a few links enabling you to be more scam aware. Age UK also has a leaflet you can download or you can contact us on 01904 634061 for a leaflet.
