Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Hi everyone

If you are interested to learn more about how to avoid scams - for your own benefit or to advise others who may be vulnerable - please take a look at the attached schedule of new webinars (online seminars, if you prefer to avoid modern jargon!) taking place in July. They are, of course, entirely free, and open to all - Neighbourhood Watch Members or not! - so please pass on the details to everyone who could be interested, and help to protect them against this terrible problem.

Scam webinars organised by Neighbourhood Watch 
The webinars are FREE to attend and are open to anyone who would like to know more about scams, the psychology behind scams, prevention and how a fraud case is investigated.
The webinars bring together experts in their field relating to online fraud, a topic which we are all too familiar with and can affect anyone and everyone, as our lives are played out more digitally.
To book, all you need to do is go to
and click on the webinar that you wish to attend (you can attend all)  and then complete the registration page.
