North Wales Safeguarding Board will be supporting the 2021 Scams Awareness Campaign, which will take place from 14 – 27 June. This annual campaign is all about creating a network of confident, #ScamAware citizens who are able to recognise a scam, report it to the appropriate agency and talk about their experiences to help raise public awareness of scams.
The coronavirus pandemic has made it even more important to empower the public to protect themselves against scams. Last year, we saw an increase in scams relating to coronavirus as fraudsters tried to take advantage of all the uncertainty of the pandemic. As we move towards economic recovery, scams continue to be a prevalent issue, with scammers seeking to exploit the fall out of the pandemic.
