Fraud Prevention

Fraud campaign relaunches off the back of first ever Fraud Conference hosted by Humberside Police | Humberside Police

Humberside Police hosted the first ever Fraud Prevention Conference in our region yesterday (Wednesday 26 April), with speakers from the force’s Economic Crime Unit (ECU), national and local Trading Standards, Victim Support, Age Concern, Citizens Advice and True Call.

The Fraud Prevention Conference has been a catalyst to relaunch Take Five, a national campaign launched back in May 2021 offering straight-forward, impartial advice to help prevent and disrupt fraudulent activity, as well as protect victims against it.

A priority for both the force and the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), the two have partnered to reiterate the seriousness of this crime, the effect it has on victims, as well as giving people the tools and power to spot the signs of fraud.
