Fraud crime prevention advice

Alert message sent 07/05/2022 21:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Staffordshire Police


TAKE FIVE TO STOP FRAUD
Criminals are experts at impersonating people, organisations and the police. They spend hours researching you for their scams, hoping you’ll let your guard down for just a moment. Stop and think. It could protect you and your money.

STOP
Taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.

CHALLENGE
Could it be fake? It’s ok to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.

PROTECT
Contact your bank immediately if you think you’ve fallen for a scam and report it to Action Fraud.
