April’s Fraud Newsletter
Here is the fraud newsletter for April. This month we’re raising awareness of Covid-19 related fraud, as national agencies have seen increases in fraud and cybercrime. While the virus is of course the nation’s focus, fraudsters are not resting – we’ve seen reports of criminals claiming to be from HMRC and TV licensing across both counties.
