TFT Project Manager & Digital Engagement Officer | GCVS
This will be the TFT team’s last update on the GCVS Blog, as the project is coming to an end next month. We’ve had such a great time getting back out to speak to groups we visited previously, and making sure our materials were updated in our chosen Awareness Raising Venues around the city.
In October, we visited more businesses in Finnieston, as well as heading up to Maryhill – the Burgh Halls in particular are still looking fab since our last visit, such a great venue for the community (and the café’s pretty good as well, we have to say…!)
Take a look at the scam stories grabbing the headlines this month, and please remember to stay safe when it comes to fraud. Above all – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!!
- As mentioned in last month’s update, the gang were jailed after conning around 1500 people out of £17m!
- The scam involves fake identities and victims being tricked into believing they are in a relationship with someone they have met online.
- The 22-year-old man said he was forced into taking part in the scam after revealing too much personal information on the dark web. Scary stuff!
