Friends Against Scams
Posted on Friday 22nd June 2018
Friends Against Scams is a National Trading Standards Scams Team initiative, which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities to Take a Stand Against Scams.
Created to tackle the lack of scams awareness by providing information about scams and those who fall victim to them. This information enables communities and organisations to understand scams, talk about scams and cascade messages throughout communities about scams prevention and protection.
Friends Against Scams encourages communities and organisations to take the knowledge learnt and turn it into action. Anybody can join Friends Against Scams and make a difference by completing free online training.
Staffordshire Trading Standards is a Friends Against Scams Organisation working in partnership with the National Trading Standards Scams Team and is committed to protecting the people of Staffordshire from becoming victims of scams, empower communities and by stamping out scams and fraud.
