Unfortunately not everyone knows how to spot a scam or what to do if they are suspicious.
That’s why at CARBS we’re using local events and a national campaign to promote Scams Awareness.
Just last weekend CARBS volunteers raised the issue with scores of local people at the excellent Banstead May Fayre.
And in June we’re supporting Scams Awareness Month run by Citizens Advice and Trading Standards. Our aim is to encourage local employers and other groups to help staff and supporters improve their knowledge and protect themselves better.
