Scams Awareness Campaign 2019
Small and medium businesses are everywhere and are vital to the success of the UK economy. There are many threats against them including being susceptible to fraud. SME's may be vulnerable to fraud because they have to focus on other aspects of the business.
The Norfolk Against Scams Partnership (NASP) is a partnership of organisations committed to taking a stand against scams and aims to make Norfolk a scam free county. We are working together to protect and support residents and businesses in Norfolk from scams, doorstep crime and fraud.
Scams Awareness Campaign 2019- Monday 10th to Sunday 23rd June
This year’s theme is to ensure that people "stop, report, talk" if they think they're being targeted by a scam.
• Stop - As scams have become more prevalent and complex, consumers and businesses must have the knowledge to recognise a scam to protect themselves and those around them.
• Report - Scams are massively underreported which poses problems for the authorities tackling scams across the country. Consumersand businesses need to know how to report scams and be empowered to take action
. • Talk - Anyone can become a victim of a scam and encouraging conversations with business contacts , friends and family we can protect one another.
