Overview

Did you know that fraud and scams cost people in the UK £10.9 billion a year?

This engaging one-hour session will help you spot the signs of common scams, so you’ll know what to look out for to stay safe.

Types of scams

Fraud and scams aren’t new, but advances in technology give criminals more ways to attempt to access your money. Getting to know the techniques they use can help you protect yourself and your money.

We’ll take a look at some of the most common scams out there today, and discuss some real-life examples too.

Your digital footprint

Being online gives us access to endless possibilities, but in doing so we can often share personal information. Here we explore the type of data we’ve been sharing, and just how much it can reveal about us.

How to protect yourself

Now you know how scammers work, what can you do about it?

Learn how to secure your devices and data effectively, as we cover practical tips to safeguard yourself.

We’ll also run through the steps you should take if the worst should happen, and you think you’ve become the victim of a fraud or scam.
