Fraudsters want your PIN, Bank Card or Cash

Increasingly fraud is becoming more complex and deceptive, much of which is targeted at vulnerable and elderly people. Fraud can be initiated in many ways, through emails, letters, telephone calls and face to face contact.

A comprehensive guide on fraud prevention, explaining some of the most common scams in existence, ranging from the simple to the sophisticated, providing essential advice to reduce the chances of you being parted from your money, can be found below.

The booklet, The Little Book of Big Scams, is primarily aimed at the elderly and vulnerable in society as they are particularly at risk; but anyone who reads it will benefit. People from all backgrounds and income levels are targeted by scammers - anyone can fall victim to fraud.
