Scheming Crafty Aggressive Malicious (SCAMS)

There are hundreds of types of scams – fake lotteries and prize draws, incredible schemes to make money quickly, fake investments plans and work from home schemes – the list goes on and on.

The people who run these scams are clever and sophisticated and they know how to persuade us to part with our cash. Most scams have some things in common – if the offer is to good to be true it is sure to be a scam.

How con-people succeed – they will:

NEVER send any money or give any personal details to anyone until you have checked them out.

The best information about SCAMs, how to recognise and deal with them, is given in "The Little Big Book of SCAMS" produced by the Metropolitan Police.
