Beware of cost of living scams

We should all be aware of possible scams when we are online or receiving messages by any means. One recent scam has seen criminals impersonating family members in WhatsApp groups. Money Saving Expert is currently highlighting three particular  scams to watch out for as fraudsters try to exploit the cost of living crisis.

Criminals are increasingly trying to capitalise on the crisis by targeting households with bogus offers of rebates, grants and support payments. But official Government support payments are usually automatic, so if you get a request for information out of the blue via text, email, or phone call – be wary. You can read more about these scams here on the Money Saving Expert website.
