Take Five Week

This Take Five Week (taking place week commencing 13 September 2021), Take Five to Stop Fraud is launching The Art of Saying No campaign. UK Finance research shows that rejecting, refusing or ignoring requests to share personal or financial information can be the best way to protect against criminals.  However, as a nation we aren’t known for being direct. So this Take Five Week, Take Five to Stop Fraud is calling on people to perfect The Art of Saying No.  Criminals are experts at impersonating people, organisations and the police so it can be difficult to spot scam texts, emails and phone calls. However, there are things we can all do to protect ourselves. Take Five is warning that when it comes to fraudsters, being indirect could have serious financial and emotional consequences.

This Take Five Week, we encourage you to the follow the advice of the Take Five to Stop Fraud campaign by making sure you Stop, Challenge, Protect. | Fraud Women's Network, PO Box 60454, London E8 9DA | +44 (0)7534 494 779 | Terms of use  | Privacy Policy
