If you think someone has been scammed

Published: 10 May 2023

You can help someone you know by looking out for

- unusual amounts of post or unusual phone calls

- whether they have started being secretive about their finances

- whether they suddenly seem to have a lot less money

- whether they seem to be buying lots of goods, or having work done on their house that they don't need
