Safe Against Scams
Due to the success of previous sessions, West Sussex County Council is running more Safe Against Scams webinars. Please share the information about these sessions with your family and friends, so we can prevent as many people as possible from becoming a victim of fraud.

More than ever before, we have been relying on technology to enable us to work, learn and connect with each other. Inevitably, criminals have exploited and used our increased digital lives to their advantage. The pandemic has seen a rise in scams including telephone, courier and romance fraud, which have all become an increased concern in West Sussex. Not only is there the financial impact on victims, but the emotional impact can be even more significant.

To help raise awareness of these different types of scams, how to spot them, and what to do if you or your family become a victim, the West Sussex Community Safety & Wellbeing Team alongside Trading Standards are running free monthly scams awareness webinars for you to attend:

Tuesday 14 September 2021: 10:00 – 11:30am
Tuesday 12 October 2021: 10:00 – 11:30am
Thursday 4 November 2021: 10:00 – 11:30am

You can book to attend any of the above sessions via Eventbrite here.

For support with accessing the webinars from your own device, or for the opportunity to view the webinars on a library iPad at your local library, call for support or register your interest by contacting the Remote Digital Support Service via 0330 222 3455.
