Many of us have been going online more due to the pandemic but with online scams becoming increasingly common, it’s important to know how to protect yourself. Millions of people are scammed every year and older people are particularly affected, with 800,000 older people experiencing fraud every year.
Age UK have created a useful guide for older people on how to stay safe online and what to do if you think you have been the victim of a scam, available here https://bit.ly/3h2FYEl. They can also offer support via their helpline on 0800 678 1602 or contact Age UK Leeds, details are on their website here https://www.ageuk.org.uk/leeds/our-services/information-and-advice/.
