Friends Against Scams is a National Trading Standards Scams Team initiative which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering people to take a stand against scams.
Friends Against Scams is designed to inspire action, highlight the scale of the problem, change the perceptions of why people fall for scams and make scams a community, regional and national topic.
By attending a Friends Against Scams awareness session or completing the online learning, anyone can learn about the different types of scams and how to spot and support a victim. With increased knowledge and awareness, people can make scams part of everyday conversation with their family, friends and neighbours, which will enable them to protect themselves and others.
Anyone can be a Friend Against Scams and make a difference in their own way. Visit their website for more information by clicking here.
If someone signs up for this initiative and are willing to help other Comberton residents then your name / contact details could be held by the Parish Council in case they a get a request for help from them.
Always question unsolicited requests for your personal or financial information in case it’s a scam. Use the main company website to check..
