Covid 19 -Business Scams
Malicious email attachments, false government grant phone calls and CEO impersonation scams are among a raft of scams undermining businesses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The increasing risk has led the National Trading Standards Scams team to launch Businesses Against Scams, a new element of the successful Friends Against Scams initiative.
The initiative includes a free online training tool to protect businesses, employees and customers from costly scams . The increased risk for businesses has led National Trading Standards to encourage more businesses to join Businesses Against Scams.
The initiative provides free tools for businesses to help upskill and train their workforce, through free online training modules that will help staff identify and prevent potential scams.
