    Post by papa_umau on Tue 24 Oct 2017, 11:29 am

    Action Fraud is highlighting the latest scams based on reports from the public assessed and analysed by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB). 

    Action Fraud is a police sponsored website that advises against the scams that are going about, the latest scams, and how to avoid them.

    Get the full article from Action Fraud HERE




    Because the scroats are always finding different ways to scam us and rip-us-off every day, it is good practice to look at this site now and again.

    Watch out, they are going to try to scam you !

    You have connected us with that police site before, and the information is good to know.

    Yes, it is, as we know that the police do not have any other axes to grind other than to try to persuade us to not encourage the scammers.

    I was nearly scammed on a holiday booking a few days ago  but I just stopped short of making the payment.

    I think you have made us more aware of these things on ROB Papa.

    Well, I hope so Angie, as that is my raison d'etre for doing this for nothing.
