Scams Awareness Fortnight

Our annual Scams Awareness campaign aims to create a network of confident, alert consumers who know what to do when they spot a scam. This year's campaign took place from the 14 - 27 June.

If you're looking for advice and support on scams please visit our online advice pages.

Your efforts during the Scams Awareness campaign are important, whether you’re an individual consumer looking to protect yourself and your family from scams, or an organisation or group representing consumers.

Protecting people against scams is more important than ever. Many people are facing issues as a result of the coronavirus pandemic - from employment and debt, to housing and health - meaning more people are in vulnerable situations. Scammers are taking advantage of this, so it's vital people have the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves.

Help us spread the message that scams are crimes that can happen to anyone and that we can all take a stand to help stop them. There are actions we can all take to report them, share stories and raise awareness of scams to safeguard ourselves and others.
