  • Raising Awareness of Scams and How to Avoid Them

    Created: 30/09/2021

    Fife Council's Adult Support and Protection Team, in partnership with Trading Standards and NatWest Bank are now in a position to offer a virtual presentation tailored to your organisation on scams - to raise awareness and provide advice and guidance.

    This presentation has been driven forward by the Financial Harm Working Group and stems from the ASPC Strategic improvement Plan 2021-23.

    The session will include (and can be tailored to your needs):


    •   Some startling statistics relating to scams

    •   How scammers operate

    •   How to recognise a scam- by phone, email, text, letter or in person

    •   Information on some of the very latest scams

    •   How to deal with scammers and prevent unwanted contact

    •   A banking perspective

    •   Where you can get help and support if you believe you may have been scammed 

    •   Time for questions

    •   Trading Standards will have an input in the talks and will normally do a little about doorstep sellers as that isn’t covered in the Nat West talk.


    It is also possible to coordinate a session on scams tailored to youth groups from high school age and upwards.

    To arrange a session tailored to the needs of your organisation, please contact Ruth Smith: [email protected]
