Fraud Protection Conference, Enderby

Posted: Wed, 28 Feb 2018 09:33

Although fraud and online crime are not new, Leicestershire Police over recent weeks has seen an increase in reports of fraud affecting older and vulnerable residents of Leicestershire.

To that end, to raise awareness and help protect communities, Leicestershire Police are holding a FREE Fraud Protection Conference at Police Headquarters, on Friday 23rd March 2018.

Who is the event aimed at?

  • Anyone who has been a victim of fraud or cybercrime
  • Anyone who is concerned about fraud and cybercrime, who would like to learn more in order to protect themselves and their families
  • Anybody who works or volunteers with elderly or vulnerable communities who could help us raise awareness of the most common issues and spread best practice advice

What will it entail?

Presentations and guidance on fraud, scams and how to stay safe online from our Fraud Unit, Cyber Protect Officer and GetSafeOnline

Prevention advice from Leicestershire Trading Standards on doorstep crime, scam mail, and dealing with cold callers

Advice and information from a number of organisations such as Age Concern, companies offering Call Blocking technology, and GetSafeOnline amongst others

When is it?

Friday 23rd March from 10am to 3pm, buffet lunch included.

See attached poster for more info.
