Anyone can be a victim of scams.
Scams affect the lives of millions of people across the UK and it is often the most vulnerable members of society who are targeted. People who are scammed often experience loneliness, shame and social isolation.
The aim of Friends Against Scams is to inspire action, highlight the scale of the problem, change the perceptions of why people fall victim to scams and make scams a local, regional and national topic.
Friends Against Scams aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities to take a stand against scams.
