At our weekly meeting on Thursday 21st November, Carnforth Rotary President, Pete Lambson, members and guests welcomed David Wilding from Lancashire Constabulary.
David gave an extremely informative talk on Awareness of Scams, Fraud and Cyber Crime. The topic covered online scams, phishing, the fraud cycle, vulnerability and consequences of fraud.
There are 450 fraud reports per month, but this is probably only the tip of the iceberg. The aim is for the prevention of these frauds, as prosecution is difficult.
