The campaign will launch for the 4th time on the 1st July 2016. Last year 38 CAB offices took part by campaigning on social media or displaying posters. Many held events to talk about scams face to face with local people. Many worked in partnership with local agencies making scams a priority and protecting those most at risk.
Scams aren’t a minor inconvenience: they cause distress and misery, and can ruin lives. If you decide to take part in this year's campaign, you're helping to give people the awareness that will help them protect themselves and those in their families and communities who are less able to spot scams. Scams Awareness Month 2016 aims to create a confident community of consumers; people who get timely advice from trusted sources, people who report scams and share their experiences so that others can benefit.
