I am supporting the TalkTalk “Beat the Scammers” campaign which is raising awareness of how you can protect yourself from online fraud. Several residents have previously written to me about being scammed with serious consequences. Fraudsters are constantly changing the way they attempt to identify private information and this campaign provides some simple prevention measures.
If you are ever a victim of fraud, do not hesitate to call the Action Fraud helpline on 0300 123 2040.
