Fraud and Scams

Fraud is when a person lies to you, or ‘scams’ you, to gain an advantage, such as taking your money or learning private information about you. This could be via email, text, phone or in person, either on the street or on your doorstep.

The Hampshire Constabulary website has a wealth of good advice about fraud (including online fraud and cyber crime) on their website:
