It can be easy to think scams and frauds only catch out vulnerable elderly people or those who aren’t tech-savvy - but this simply isn’t the case.

Whereas older people are more vulnerable to certain kinds of scams, such as courier fraud, the young and middle-aged are more susceptible to losing money in other ways.

For example, figures from the City of London Police’s National Fraud Intelligence Bureau based on actual reported crimes across UK police forces show that in 2014, the most defrauded job-seekers were between the ages of 18 and 25.

With this in mind, it’s important that each of us are alert to the danger of fraud. The module will introduce you to identifying frauds and suggest practical actions you can take to keep you, your money and your identity safe.
