A new guide was launched yesterday by Conor Burns MP that saw collaboration across a number of bodies such as Bournemouth University @bournemouthuni, Cifas @CifasUK and the Payment Systems Regulator @ThePSR all with the same aim to seek to reduce the risk of financial scamming and offer guidance and help where needed. @ConorBurnsUK MP, Bournemouth University's Professor Keith Brown and @BWallaceMP minister for security spoke passionately to us about financial crime and fraud.
I have been trying to help raise public awareness on financial scamming and was delighted to have the opportunity to contribute the material on pension fraud and investment scams.
I have seen the devastating effect financial scams can have on people's lives and I want to help drive change to ensure the public are better protected and informed.
The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Financial Crime and Scamming, has this week launched a guide to fraud and scams at the Houses of Parliament. The reception, which was attended by various key figures from across politics, safeguarding, and healthcare, saw speeches made by those working with the APPG to fight fraud. BU's Professor Keith Brown, National Research Lead on financial scamming, said: "We are delighted to be publishing this guide in collaboration with our partners. The guide is part of our extensive work in this field. It is essential that knowledge about the true impact of this crime becomes widely known and measures which aim to protect all citizens are strengthened."
