Three weeks ago the "Little Book of Big Scams" was launched by Esther Rantzen and the Met Police Commissioner in conjunction with anti-fraud agencies. It lists several scams and gives you tips on how you can prevent becoming victims to such crimes. It includes advice on identity fraud, scam mail, door to door scams, banking and payment scams, mobile phone and internet scams; it even gives advice on dating and romance scams! Please have a look at it, you can find the internet article launching it here and at the top of the page there is a link to the pdf version of the document itself. A word of caution about printing it as it is 48 pages of full colour, A4 size and takes about 10 minutes to print one copy.
