Today sees the start of Scams Awareness Month 2015. The Scottish launch will take place in Nairn in conjunction with Nairn CAB, Police Scotland and Trading Standards. Find out more about SAM 2015 here.
This year, Citizens Advice Scotland's All Shapes and Sizes campaign encourages the public to fight back by 'ending the call, trashing the email, ripping-up the letter and closing the door'.
Through each week of SAM 2015, there will be a particular focus on a different type of scam, also reflected in Citizens Advice Scotland's campaign materials.
online scams – week beginning July 6th
mail scams – week beginning July 13th
telephone scams – week beginning July 20th
doorstep scams – week beginning July 27th
