Ask the Experts Tues 22nd June 7pm-9pm

Alert message sent 08/06/2021 11:43:00

Information sent on behalf of North Yorkshire Police


This is a remider for an upcoming event:

My name is Andy Fox and I am the Financial Abuse Safeguarding Officer attached to the Economic Crime Unit at North Yorkshire Police.

With fraudsters continuing to target victims with ever more sophisticated scams which involve the victims giving access to their online accounts or being persuaded to transfer money, this is an opportunity to learn about the tricks the scammers use and how to spot them.
North Yorkshire Police are hosting an online event in partnership with HSBC Bank which will be your opportunity to learn about the types of online banking fraud currently operating, how to spot them and how to stay safe.

HSBC Bank will be giving a presentation and then there will be a panel of experts to answer all of your fraud queries. This is not restricted to online banking but may be about any fraud concerns you may have
 
My primary role in the unit is to visit victims of fraud and offer safeguarding advice in order to reduce the likelihood of that person becoming a repeat victim. I often see first-hand the misery that being such a victim of fraud can bring.

I have on previous occasions organised information evenings, either here at Police HQ here in Northallerton or at Aviva offices in York, however due to current restrictions this is not possible. The evenings would have taken the format of a short presentation followed by an opportunity for attendees to discuss in small groups their experiences and fears. These groups were normally facilitated by an officer who is experienced in dealing with fraud. These events were well attended indicating how concerned residents of North Yorkshire are about fraud.

I am keen for these events to continue and I have organised this online event.  This will be conducted over Microsoft Teams. Do not worry if you do not have Teams installed on your computer. All attendees will be sent a link and you will join the meeting through your web browser. Full details will be circulated to all those attending prior to the event.

This is the fourth of these types of events I have organised. They are very well attended and attract positive feedback.

This online event will take place on Tuesday 22nd  June 7pm – 9pm.
