10 tips to help you beat the scammers


“In our next crime advice segment we are going to cover 10 tips to help you beat the scammers.

1. Be suspicious of all "too good to be true" offers and deals. There are no guaranteed get-rich schemes

2. Do not agree to offers or deals immediately, Insist on time to obtain independent/legal advice before making a decision.

3. Do not hand over money or sign anything until you have checked the credentials of the company or individual

4. Never send money to anyone you do not know or trust, whether in the UK or abroad, or use methods of payment that you are not comfortable with.

5. Never give banking or personal details to anyone you do not know or trust. This information is valuable so make sure you protect it

6. Always log on to a website directly rather than clicking on links provided in an email

7. Do not rely on glowing testimonials, find solid independent evidence of success

8. Always get legal/independent advice if the offer involves money

9. If you have been scammed or spot a scam please report it and get help. Contact Action Fraud

10. Do not be embarrassed to report a scam. Scammers are cunning and clever there is no shame in being deceived. A lot of the time they catch us off guard and we make a quick decision which is not ideal. Report them to make it difficult for them to deceive others.”

ABOUT 112

Need help? 112 is your life-saving number!

112 is the European emergency phone number, available everywhere in the EU, free of charge.

It is possible to call 112 from fixed and mobile phones to contact any emergency service: an ambulance, the fire brigade or the police.

When a person dials 112, a specially trained operator will answer the call. Depending on the national organisation of emergency services, the operator will either deal with the request directly or transfer the call to the most appropriate emergency service.

Operators in many countries can answer the calls not only in their national language, but also in English or French. If the caller does not know where he is, the operator will identify where the person making the call is physically located and will pass it to the emergency authorities so that these can help immediately.

112 operators do not provide traffic and weather reports, general information or answers to queries. Calling 112 as a joke or calling and then hanging up is considered a hoax call. Hoax calls not only waste the time and money of the emergency operators, but can also be dangerous. If 112 lines or call operators are busy with hoax calls, someone with a real emergency may not be able to get the help needed. In most countries, it is a criminal offence to make hoax 112 calls and a person can be judged for that.

112 does not replace the existing (UK 999) national emergency number. In most countries, it operates alongside them. However, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Malta and Romania have opted for 112 as their main national emergency number.
