Finders International Supports Friends Against Scams

 

Finders International is being recognised as a Friends Against Scams organisation in a bid to encourage more people to spread the word and to take a stand against scams.
As part of the scheme, Finders International employees will also be trained about the different types of scams and how to spot and support a victim.

 

Friends Against Scams

Friends Against Scams is a National Trading Standards (NTS) Scams Team initiative, which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities to “Take a Stand Against Scams”.

The effects of Scams?

Scams affect the lives of millions of people across the UK. People who are scammed often experience shame and social isolation as a result.
