ARE YOU or someone you know, inundated with scam mail? Tempted to respond to it? Keen to help track down the criminals behind scams and help put a stop to their activities?
IF YES to any of the above then why not become a Scam Marshal for National Trading Standards (NTS) Scams Team.
A Scam Marshal is any resident in the UK who has been targeted by a scam and now wants to fight back and take a stand against scams. Scam Marshals do this by sharing their own experiences, helping others to report and recognise scams and sending any scam mail that they receive to the NTS Scams Team so that it can be utilised as evidence in future investigative and enforcement work. This work by Scam Marshals plays a huge role in helping to stop the scam mail altogether.
The FAS team would like to share this article from This Is Money featuring Thomas Wyness, who is one of our Scam Marshals. In the article Thomas tells his story of being a scam victim and how the Scam Marshal scheme helped him fight back against the criminals.
If you are interested in becoming a Scam Marshall please take a look at The Friends Against Scams website for more information www.FriendsAgainstScams.org.uk/ScamMarshals
