Friends Against Scams
Aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities to “Take a Stand Against Scams”. This is achieved by looking 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. To find out more, visit www.norfolk.gov.uk/friendsagainstscams.
