The Little Book of Big Scams

October is National NHW Cyber Crime month.
One of the initiatives is to promote “Take Five to Stop Fraud”: the national campaign from Financial Fraud Action UK and the UK Government.

As part of the North Yorkshire NHW support for the initiative I am inviting you to view the excellent booklet entitled “The Little Book of Big Scams”.This has been sponsored by NY Police and NY County Council from an original publication by the Metropolitan Police. It is available in print format as well as electronically.
You can view and download the booklet from the hyperlink below.
This 43 page booklet is in easy to read format and explores a range of issues in non-technical language and contains:
Key types of online fraud ranging from:
-Holiday scams to online banking or credit card fraud.
-Investment fraud
-Scam mail/ mass market fraud
and most importantly: what to do if you get scammed and how to reduce the damage.

Please go to the following link now and get your copy of this very useful booklet, it will open your eyes as to the ingenuity of criminals to get hold of your hard earned money!

  1. Hi,
    Thank you for circulating my message distributed via CMS promoting this publication. It is very pleasing to see the Slingsby Village web-site supporting the initiative to re-launch your village Neighbourhood Watch. If you need any assistance from Ryedale NHW please contact us.
