Last week, our dedicated fraud officer, Andy Foster, delivered a presentation on fraud related crime at the Yorkshire Pensioners Convention.

Andy’s role at the event, held at the Hillsborough Arena in Sheffield, was to inform people about the different types of frauds and scams that are most current, how to spot them and what measures they can take to protect themselves.

Andy said: “It’s incredibly important that people are aware of the different types of fraud out there and how to spot a scam. A large part of my role is about engaging with the community and giving them the knowledge to be able to spot a scam, such as a fraudulent cold caller for example, as well as what measures they can take to protect themselves.”

Information on the different types of fraud, emerging trends and advice and how to report an incident is available at actionfraud.police.uk.
