Are you scam savvy?


To stop individuals becoming victims of fraud and blackmail, we are running three ‘Are you scam savvy?’ events, both online and in person at Crawley, Bognor Regis and Shoreham libraries.

The sessions are for anyone who wants to keep themselves, or friends and family, from falling foul of different types of scams, including telephone, courier and romance fraud, which have all become an increased concern in West Sussex.

Crawley Library 19th April 10-11.30

Bognor Library 20th May 10-11.30

Shoreham Library 17th June 10-11.30
