Advice NI are pleased to join the Scamwise NI partnership

Established in 2016, the Scamwise NI partnership now has over 30 members, each one sharing their own unique knowledge on how to protect the more vulnerable of our society.

Increased awareness of scams is the first step to helping people, which is why Scamwise NI has developed the Scam Test:
  • Seems too good to be true
  • Contacted out of the blue
  • Asked for personal details
  • Money requested
The most common scams at the moment are email, internet, phone or doorstep fraud with the perpetrators claiming to represent large organisations such as banks, insurance companies, TV licensing or even those who claim they can get people larger Universal Credit payments.
Remember, to spot a scam is to stop a scam. If you have discovered something you think may be a scam then you should report it to the police or Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040
