TFT Project Manager & Digital Engagement Officer | GCVS
It’s hard to believe we’re already on our fourth Tackling Fraud Together update! For the moment, the TFT team have wrapped up our refresh visits to the groups we saw previously, and we’ve collected both parts of our questionnaires to see if people’s attitudes towards fraud have changed since our visits, and how they have changed.
This month, we’re concentrating on ensuring our flyers and posters are as widely distributed throughout Glasgow as possible and we’ll be hitting the city centre soon, so remember to keep an eye out for our leaflets!
- A man from Rutherglen hacked into people’s accounts on a shopping website, using them to order goods worth £128,789!
- Staff at Stobhill Hospital were targeted by fruadsters, who told them they could claim money back towards the cost of their work uniforms.
- Police were alerted to this scam by a man in Alexandria, who received a call supposedly from his wife’s number, informing him that she had been in an accident and treatment would not be covered by the NHS. Scary stuff!!
