Corona Virus Scams – Information from Trading Standards

Unscrupulous criminals are exploiting fears about COVID-19 to prey on members of the public, particularly older and vulnerable people who are isolated from family and friends. National Trading Standards is warning people to remain vigilant following a rise in coronavirus-related scams that seek to benefit from the public’s concern and uncertainty over COVID-19.

Trading Standards have produced the social media pack below, alongside a press release (https://www.friendsagainstscams.org.uk/article/505/beware_of_covid_19_scams) and letter template.

Please share the posts in the media pack to draw attention to the infographic, which provides information on how to protect yourself and others from coronavirus scams. The Friends Against Scams training has been updated to include further information on the types of coronavirus scams the team have seen and actions to take to protect yourself and others.
