    Top scams to look out for in 2018 - and how to avoid them.

    Post by papa_umau on Wed 08 Aug 2018, 10:39 am

    FROM bogus Brexit scams to fake wedding websites, one of Britain's leading banks has compiled a list of what scams Britons should look out for this year.

    The bank has looked at the key ways fraudsters could try to con people out of their money.


    Together with Future Laboratory, NatWest analysed scams over the last 18 months to predict what to look for in 2018.

    Julie McArdle, NatWest security manager said: "Scammers are dogged in their attempts to get their hands on people's money and are always looking for new ways to get ahead.

    "This means banks and customers need to evolve alongside scammers too.

    "By being aware and staying ahead of scammers, we can stop them winning and keep the country's money safe and secure."

    Get the full report from The Daily Express HERE




    I know I regularly try to highlight scammers on ROB, but this is the latest link to help safeguard people from being scammed in 2018.
