KEEPING YOU ON YOUR TOES! It is important to keep up to date and on your toes when it comes to local fraud and scams. There are so many currently out there it is important you are aware of the more common and frequent ones.
The top ten are the rare metals scam, pensions liberation fraud, mobility aids, dodgy job offers (if it sounds too good to be true it probably is), lotteries, truancy fraud, wine scams, love (dating websites), land barking and carbon credit trading. It is important that you can spot a scam or fraud before it takes place, remember it can happen to anyone of us. Note: If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is.
