A Scam takes many forms; emails, letters and telephone calls – even text messages all can pose a risk to you and your wellbeing and are designed to make false claims or promises to you in order for you to part with your hard earned cash. Prize draws, official looking emails or text messages, websites – the threats are endless now.
So it’s even more important now for you to understand what the threats are.
Fair Trading, otherwise known as Scams, is something London Trading Standards cares passionately about. Not only do we want to keep people safe and promote Fair trading – but we also share messages on social media about the latest trends we are seeing to warn people to not click an email, link in a text, or message.
