Derbyshire Scam Watch


Date and Time: 28 March 2019

Location: Derby Cathedral, Iron Gate, Derby DE1 3GP - View Map

Come along to Derby Cathedral on 28 March between 11am and 1pm to find out about the types of scams operating in our area and how to avoid them.

Why Scamwatch? Personal fraud attempts are out there in many forms. Cyber attempts may come through email, Facebook and other social media while telephone scams use pressure techniques to try to get people to upgrade something on a home computer or quickly pay something they think they owe. Postal scams may come in the form of lottery 'wins' or pressure to purchase over-valued goods. Using pressure techniques or plausible romance anyone can be influenced.

Derbyshire Scamwatch- Citizens Advice working with Cyber crime specialists and Trading Standards - hope to inform you of ways you can protect yourselves, your clients or customers and your family.  

This event is FREE and open to all but community leaders are particularly encouraged to come and cascade this information on.

We look forward to seeing you there.
