School for Scammers – 9 May 2018

HASWA members took part in a very useful interactive Arc Theatre performance School for Scammers. The performance highlighted how scamming can take a multitude of forms such as identity fraud through your letterbox, the get rich-quick swindle in your email, the courier con on your telephone, or the roofing repair trick at your door. Scammers make their living by building your confidence in them and deceiving you out of your money or possessions by increasingly creative methods – using the latest technology, loopholes, or just plain lies. Everyone is at risk, not just the elderly or vulnerable.
