You may have seen articles in the press in December and reminders again this month about an increase in the number of scams being reported to Action Fraud.

Scams can take many forms, either by email, telephone, postal or cold calling and as they become more sophisticated its best to remember that "if something looks too good to be true", then it probably is and its best to be avoided.

The Met Police have put together a very useful booklet on this topic entitled "The Little book of big scams - 4th Edition 2018", which I have attached to this Beds Alert for your information.

The following link will take you direct to the  Action Fraud website https://www.actionfraud.police.uk
