Scams Awareness 2019

Scams Awareness is a yearly campaign which aims to create a network of confident, alert consumers who know what to do when they see a scam. This year's campaign will take place over two weeks, from the 10th-23rd June.

Whether you’re an individual consumer looking to protect yourself and your family from scams, or an organisation or group representing consumers, your efforts during the campaign are important.

Help us spread the message that scams are crimes that can happen to anyone and we don’t need to be embarrassed if we fall victim to them.

If you are a campaigner in Scotland please visit Citizens Advice Scotland for more information about the campaign where you live.
