This week the Neighbourhood Network team in partnership with DS Ben Robinson of Humberside Police hosted a Fraud Prevention awareness over Zoom as part of the Older Peoples Week Celebrations.
Anyone can become a victim of fraud, however the average age of a scam victim is 75, showing that criminals tend to prey on older and often more vulnerable members of society.
Its important to share examples of fraud and how we can best protect ourselves and others, such as ‘taking five’ or knowing where to forward fraudulent emails or texts that we receive.
