Protecting yourself from fraudsters 

Fraudsters are increasingly targeting the public and organisations regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak with emails, texts, phone calls, WhatsApp messages and fake websites offering advice, asking for donations and treatment for the coronavirus. 

To help members of the public protect themselves from becoming a victim of fraud, Cifas, The UK’s Fraud Prevention Service regularly updates their website with details of known scams and advice on how to protect yourself, www.cifas.org.uk/coronavirus-fraud-advice 

If you think you have been a victim of a scam, Essex Victim Support www.victimsupport.org.uk can provide support.
