Scams and Online Safety

Scams and Online Safety

As more people stay at home to protect themselves from coronavirus, and people spend more time working and shopping online, there has been a rise of online scams. Unscrupulous individuals are also coming to peoples’ doors asking for donations to the NHS and for Keyworkers asking for both cash and bank details; as these fall outside the government guidance it is normally fraudsters.
