    The top five financial scams to avoid in the UK

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 20 Mar 2018, 11:04 am

    Top five financial scams to look out for in the UK.

    CONMEN are getting more deceitful and ever more successful.

    At the latest count financial crime costs the UK an eye watering 52bn, according to the Economic Crime Directorate at the City London Police. And this figure isnt all of it - apparently 88% of all cybercrime goes unreported.

    Money Means guides are brought to you by FSCS, the people who protect your money from 1 up to 85,000 in UK banks, building societies and credit unions. Find out more.

    Also read about these five scams from the FSCS HERE




    It looks as if many of the people that have been scammed by these clever people do not want anybody to know that they have been so easy to scam, so they just don't report it.

    I guess it all comes down to public embarrassment.

    Thanks for the list of scams Paps, as if we know about them we should more easily avoid them.

    Our ignorance and lack of care is what gives these people the way into our lives.

    Being on the internet is becoming a bit of a risk.

    We have to watch very closely where we are going and what we are doing to be able to avoid the myriad of scams that are now thrown at us.

    I don't know about you guys, but I worry about all this.

    It could be a worry Angie.

    At least the FSCS site gives answers to try to beat these scams if you read right down the page.
