Fraud and Cyber Prevention Conference

Alert message sent 23/02/2018 10:33:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Although fraud and online crime are not new, sadly over recent weeks we have had an increase in reports of fraud affecting older and vulnerable residents of Leicestershire.


To that end, to raise awareness and help protect our community, Leicestershire Police are holding a FREE Fraud Protection Conference at Police Headquarters, on Friday 23rd March.


Who is the event aimed at?

  • Anyone who has been a victim of fraud or cybercrime
  • Anyone who is concerned about fraud and cybercrime, who would like to learn more in order to protect themselves and their families
  • Anybody who works or volunteers with elderly or vulnerable communities who could help us raise awareness of the most common issues and spread best practice advice
    What will it entail?
    Presentations and guidance on fraud, scams and how to stay safe online from our Fraud Unit, Cyber Protect Officer, and GetSafeOnline
    Prevention advice from Leicestershire Trading Standards on doorstep crime, scam mail, and dealing with cold callers
    Advice and information from a number of organisations such as Age Concern, companies offering Call Blocking technology, and GetSafeOnline amongst others
    When is it?
    Friday 23rd March from 10am to 3pm, with buffet lunch included
    I’m interested, what do I need to do?
    If you would like to join us, please email or telephone 0116 248 5322 to reserve place(s) – cut-off date Friday 16th March.  There is no charge for this event.
    Please feel free to promote this event to anyone you feel would benefit from attending.
