The City of London Police is committed to preventing, detecting and disrupting fraudulent activities throughout the UK. Working with the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB), Get Safe Online and Action Fraud, they have created the twelve online frauds of Christmas that suspect criminals may use during the festive period. These have been compiled with the aim of highlighting these fraudulent activities and increasing business and community awareness, together with providing advice to help prevent you from becoming a victim of this type of crime.
See Getsafeonline.org for further advice and guidance.
If you are unfortunate enough to become a victim of fraud, it is important that you report it. You can do this by visiting Action Fraud – the UK’s first national fraud reporting centre. It provides a single point of contact for fraud victims, where they can both report a fraud and seek guidance and advice.
