There are a number of scams, which are meant to intimitate older persons as they are considered more vulnerable to some scams. Often living more isolated can lead to being more receptive to phone calls and demands made via email or phone.
Do you get emails telling you, that you have to pay extra for TV license, missed deliveries, which need extra payment, offers of money into your bank account? Do you get phone callls that threaten your arrest unless you press a reply button immediately and pay a sum of money?
Do you feel unsafe when going to shops, chemists? We can give tips on how to make every-day chores safer for you.
We would love to invite all members of our community to courses – in small groups – to talk about
- how scams affect us and how we can put safety nets in place not to fall for them.
- how to spot scam emails
- what to do when worried
- how to shop safer
Please get in touch with Parkview Neighbourhood Watch or the Tenants and Residents Association to arrange sessions that suit you.
