With 62% of people in the North East reporting that they have been contacted by a scammer in the last two years, it has never been more important to be #scamaware. Remember though, not all scams are online and the old cons are still being used to trick people out of their cash, savings and possessions.
Remember, break the silence – speak out about scams. The more they are reported, the more can be done about them.
