Scams are dishonest schemes, with the aim of tricking you into giving away your money.  Scammers will often target vulnerable people, as well as businesses.

They can arrive through email, post, online, over the phone or from someone knocking on your door.

For information on different types of scams visit Citizens Advice.

If you or someone you know have been targeted by a scam and you would like to report it or want advice, contact the Citizens Advice consumer service or call it's consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06.

You can also become a Friend Against Scams and learn how to recognise scams and protect yourself and those you know from becoming a scam victim.

For advice on staying safe online, or to report an email or internet scam contact Action Fraud.
