This year the theme for the week will be 'Fraud & Cybercrime'

We have listed some issues to consider

  • Do you know what social networks your child uses? Talk to them! Visit www.getsafeonline.organd www.cyberstreetwise.comfor advice.
  • Is your password strong? Use numbers, symbols, upper and lower case letters for maximum protection.
  • Banks and financial institutions will never send you an email asking you to click on a link and confirm your bank details.
  • Scam or attempted scam? Don't suffer in silence! Report it to www.actionfraud.police.uk/ 0300 123 2040
  • Have you been scammed or fallen victim to fraud? Talk about it – you could help protect others!
  • CURVY MATURE BLONDE WANTS YOUr money. Never send money to someone you haven't met in real life!
  • GENTLEMAN, 45, LIKES FAST CARS AND taking you for a ride... in every sense. Never send money to someone you haven't met in real life!
  • Stay safe from identity theft & fraud, shred receipts with your card details on and correspondence with your name and address on.
  • Your bank would never contact you to ask for your PIN, password or other security information in full. Report it to www.actionfraud.police.uk
  • Uncharacteristic email from nephew promising a dancing kittens video? It could be spam & contain a virus. Be wary of attachments!
  • Computer firms do not make unsolicited phone calls to help you fix your computer. Put the phone straight down – don't get drawn in!
  • Worried about your computer? Ask a friend or relative to recommend a good repair person. Ignore unsolicited calls telling you something is wrong!
  • When did you last update your anti-virus protection? Don't put it off any longer!
  • Would you leave your burglar alarm unset when you go away? Make sure you don't make the same mistake online – update your antivirus protection today.
  • If an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is. Ignore, ignore, ignore.
