Latest scam doing the rounds highlighted by the association, please read and observe! Scammers Caught on CCTV. We have reported on a number of Alerts that there are a sophisticated number of scams doing the rounds. Clearly for criminals this is a low risk way of extorting money from vulnerable individuals. Unusually you are hearing from us today to advise you that there is what appears to be an interesting programme on BBC 1 TV on Monday 2nd March, 20:30 Panorama: “Spying on the Scammers”. This is a story of a guy who turned the tables on the fraudsters. “Jim Browning” hacked into the fraudsters call centre in India and obtained footage of the scammers at work. Although Jims actions were quite illegal the access he gained and activities of the crooks he exposes should serve to act as a stark warning to us all. Essential viewing for our members we think.
