Both Iain Stewart MP and I feel most strongly that there is an increasing need to inform constituents of the rise in identity theft, the prevalence of cyber-crime and the wide range of fraudulent activity.
Scams are becoming more ingenious and sophisticated and it’s important that we raise awareness, to protect members of the public from fraud.
Scams under the guise of identity theft and cyber-crime are becoming more ingenious and sophisticated each day and it is important as Members of Parliament we raise awareness and protect our constituents from these devastating acts of fraud.
The cost of fraud targeting individuals is around £10billion each year. Figures suggest that there are up to 3.25 million victims but it is likely that this figure is much higher as many people never report the crime as they feel too embarrassed.
Therefore, we are inviting local and national organisations to our FREE Scam Smart event on Friday, 30th November, 2018 at Lovat Fields Retirement Village, Japonica Lane, Willen, MK15 9LE.
We are welcoming members of the public to meet the experts between 2pm – 6pm, listen to our key speakers and learn how to become more vigilant and not become a victim.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call my office 01908 686830 to book your place.
