MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay is giving his support to Age Cymru’s Scams and Swindles campaign, which aims to generate more protection for older and vulnerable people.
Speaking on Wednesday, Mr Ramsay said:
“May has been chosen as Scams Awareness Month so this is an opportune time to promote Age Cymru’s Scams and Swindles campaign.
“Shockingly, more than 100,000 people in the UK are known to be on the infamous scams ‘suckers’ lists’ and sadly, it is usually elderly or vulnerable people who are targeted and tricked by the scammers into revealing their bank details or making upfront payments.
“I hope the Scams and Swindles campaign will warn people to be on their guard against these infamous tricksters and think twice before taking any action which may cost them dear.”
