To combat the rise of fraud and online crime affecting older people, Age UK has launched a brand new fraud prevention and victim support pilot programme . This programme is running in London Boroughs but the principles apply to Mole Valley
The programme aims to support older victims, and raise awareness of scams more widely to help empower older people to feel more confident at spotting and avoiding scams.
Embarassed to report fraud
Although anyone can become a victim of fraud, Age UK and Action Fraud are warning that older people – particularly those who live alone or with cognitive impairment – are at greater risk of falling victim. Financial losses are common, but being a victim of fraud can also seriously affect people’s quality of life and wellbeing. Many older people experience a deep sense of shame, embarrassment, depression, social isolation and a decline in physical health, with some even losing their independence.
If you look out for an older member of your family or a neighbour, watch this video together, and remember it's OK to tell us!
If you think you have been a victim of fraud you should report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 20 40 or by using the online reporting tool.

SelectaDNA Trespass Beads are tiny pellets made up of a water-absorbing polymer which come in small packets similar to seeds. When the SelectaDNA Trespass Beads are left to absorb the DNA solution they increase in size more than 300% giving them an almost gel-like feel that is cool and wet to touch.
SelectaDNA Trespass Beads are designed to break upon impact (from person or vehicle) and mark criminals with a unique UV based DNA solution which is a proven and credible way to place a criminal at a crime scene, without their knowledge. The use of SelectaDNA Trespass Beads will aid in convicting criminals for trespassing or unauthorised access to restricted areas.
If you would like to find out more or discuss your trespass protection requirements then please call our police consultant Louis on 01689 860757 or email email@example.com.
