Friends Against Scams
Anyone can fall victim to a scam, criminals are experts at tricking people with false but convincing websites, emails and flashy official documents. That's why the National Trading Standards Scams Team created the Friends Against Scams initiative.
Friends Against Scams aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering people with the knowledge to take a stand against scams. Their online training and other schemes are 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.
