Be Scam Wise

Crime Commissioner launches the Be Scam Wise Campaign

The Scam Wise campaign was showcased at two events – one for front line workers who may come into contact with elderly and vulnerable people – and another attended by Lancashire’s neighbourhood watch co-ordinators and volunteers.

The new campaign has a brand new and eye-catching logo, designed to highlight the Scam Wise presence within the community and show criminals that their potential victims are clued-up and aware of scammers operating in Lancashire.

Window stickers, posters, booklets and leaflets are now circulating amongst residents across Lancashire and are being showcased as a source of early intervention and prevention of crime.

Top Tips To Take A Stand Against Doorstep Crime and Scams

  1. Display one of the Be Scam Wise stickers in your window
  2. Don’t accept doorstep quotes for household repairs from roofing to driveways
  3. Don’t buy goods on your doorstep
  4. Scammers can include clairvoyants and charity collectors who target the vulnerable
