Scam Awareness 

consumeradvice.scot is committed to the continued protection of Scottish citizens against scams. Thousands of Scots fall victim to scams every year. We're working in partnership with the Scottish Government and Trading Standards to combat illegal scammers. 

Scams cost the UK economy approximately £10 billion every year. However, only 5% of scams are ever reported. If more potential scams are reported, we can work with our partners to raise awareness and prevent further people from being scammed. 

If you think you've been the victim of a scam, please contact our expert team at 0808 164 6000.
