What is a Scam?

Scams are a way of cheating people out of their money. The criminals who operate them are sometimes called fraudsters, swindlers or con artists. In this guide, we refer to them as scammers.

A scammer may try to approach you on your doorstep, by post, over the phone or online. They’ll often pretend to be someone they’re not, or make misleading offers of services or investments.

New digital ways of communicating have led to an increasing number of scams – and more people being tricked by them. 

But you can protect yourself by knowing what to look out for, and what to do if you suspect a scam.
