One Million Friends Against Scams launch

On 24th January NTS Scams Team launched our campaign to recruit one million Friends Against Scams by 2020 with an event co-hosted by NatWest. The event included talks from the banking industry, Trading Standards, NTS Scams Team Mail Marshal Barry Atkins and Ben Wallace MP Minister of State for Security who officially launched the One Million Friends campaign.

The day was attended by delegates from the Met Police, Trading Standards, the Home Office, Money Advice Service, the NHS, local housing associations and financial fraud protection agencies.

NatWest, Take Five, TrueCall and Friends Against Scams hosted stalls where attendees were able to find out more information about the various anti-fraud and consumer protection schemes currently running.

The event was a great success with people getting involved in a special Friends Against Scams session and making their pledges to Take A Stand Against Scams.
