Scam Awareness Campaign, June 2019

●    Be suspicious if you’re contacted out of the blue, even if it’s from a name you recognise

●    If it sounds too good to be true it probably is

●    Never send money to someone you’ve never met

●    Never give out your bank details unless you are certain you can trust the person contacting you

●    Don’t be rushed – you never need to make a decision straight away and if you feel pressured say “no”

●    Suspect a scam? Hang up, wait five minutes to clear the line or use another phone to call

●    Don’t suffer in silence – speak out about scams

If you are worried, come and see your local Maidstone Citizens Advice.
