Seaton Neighbourhood Police Team have recently given talks to groups in the Seaton area in relation to Scams and how to prevent becoming a victim of fraud.
This is an increasingly common form of crime which anyone can fall for regardless of age.
The talks were aimed at making members of the public aware of the numerous ways people are targetted in realtion to scams, from online emails and random phone contact, to door to door salespersons.
People are 'tricked' into giving information to the scammers including personal and financial details or having work done to their property, and can in some circumstances lose large amounts of money.
The talks were very well attended and several issues and questions were raised and people's concerns able to be answered.
