TFT Project Manager & Digital Engagement Officer | GCVS
A huge thanks to all of the businesses, cafés, shops and pubs who were kind enough to display our leaflets and posters once again – it’s really helping us to keep the messages updated and make sure citizens of Glasgow know what they’re up against when it comes to scams, plus where they can go for help if they think they’ve been a victim of fraud.
- This awful story serves as a stark reminder not to let cold-callers into your home and just how convincing they can seem.
- After this whopping £12m VAT fraud, HMRC reminded the public that this type of thing deprives the public of money that should be spent funding public services, and so is not a “victimless crime”.
- One of the newest tactics being taken by fraudsters, this scam tries to get people to click a link from a text message and enter their details. Remember you should never give out your personal information in this way, and the DVLA explicitly stated that they will never ask for your personal details by text!
