Find out about useful information and resources to help keep your family, friends and yourself safe from scams.
More than ever before, we have been relying on technology to enable us to work, learn and connect with each other. Inevitably, criminals have exploited and used our increased digital lives to their advantage. The pandemic has seen a rise in scams including telephone, courier and romance fraud, which have all become an increased concern. Not only is there the financial impact on victims, but the emotional impact can be even more significant.
To help raise awareness of these different types of scams, how to spot them, and what to do if you or your family become a victim, the West Sussex Community Safety & Wellbeing Team, alongside Trading Standards, are running free monthly scams awareness webinars for you to attend. The same session is running at alternate times and dates to hopefully help people be able to attend one at a time convenient for them.
