Scams Awareness Fortnight 2021

The national campaign for Scams Awareness Fortnight will be running from 14-27 June 2021.

 

As in 2020, Citizens Advice Scotland will not be leading a Scotland-based campaign for this, but are taking a supportive role sharing content from the UK-wide campaign. We will also be sharing our own scams-related social media content based on the national campaign and have created assets for bureaux to use below.

What is a scam?

A scam is a scheme to try to steal money, personal information or data from a person or organisation. Other names for a scam include fraud, hoax, con, swindle and cheat.

How to get involved:

Should you wish to participate in supporting this campaign on your own bureau channels, we have provided a Scams Awareness toolkit, social media assets and a template press release in our downloads below.

Citizens Advice also has online campaign assets available here. The national messaging can also be adapted to signpost audiences to the most appropriate support available in Scotland including the following places:

Further information is also available on our public advice site for Scotland – Report a Scam.
