Scams Awareness Month

Scams are cruel crimes that damage consumer confidence and at worst blight the lives of victims and their families.

Scams Awareness Month is an important part of the fight-back. It aims to give consumers the skills and confidence to identify scams, share experiences and take action by reporting suspicious activity.

Citizens Advice and Trading Standards Services are leading activities throughout the month of May as part of Scams Awareness Month.

Whether youโ€™re an individual consumer looking to protect yourself and family from scams or an organization representing consumers, your efforts during Scams Awareness Month are vital because they will help spread the message that scams can be tackled if people learn how to spot the signs.

Weโ€™ve created a quiz to test your scam spotting skills. Take the quiz, spot the clues and share the results with your friends and family using social media.
