ISSUE 36 - MARCH 2023 in partnership with Spotting when we can be vulnerable to fraud Common phrases we hear are, “How did they fall for that!” or “I’d never fall for that!”.

When talking it through, they can identify the reason why they were vulnerable to the scam. Using theirs, and wider experiences we’d like to forewarn you, so you can be forearmed against becoming a victim of fraud.
