An event for Dudley residents to raise the awareness of fraud, scams (online and offline) and rogue traders.
Every year the British public loses billions of pounds to scammers who bombard us with online, mail, door to door and telephone scams.
Individuals do not need to be 'vulnerable' to be a victim of fraud or a scam, it can happen to anybody, at any age and the increased use of technology is another opportunity that is used by scammers.
Prevention through awareness is vital in combating scammers.
This event is being delivered in partnership by West Midlands Police, Dudley Council and the Illegal Money Lending Team in order to raise awareness of various frauds and scams and loan sharks among Dudley’s residents. It will also provide information of how to report any such incidents and where support or advice can be accessed from.
