What is the Jersey Fraud Prevention Forum

The Jersey Fraud Prevention Forum will seek to develop a coordinated and strategic approach to the protection of the Island’s general public from investment frauds and scams between the agencies concerned. J

A number of local agencies have joined forces to help protect islanders from fraud and scams. The launch will initiate the first of many campaigns to highlight and raise awareness of the dangers of fraud in particular phone and mail scams.

Fraudsters are increasingly targeting islanders over the telephone posing as call centres, bank staff and police. Scammers try defrauding members of the public by asking simple questions, extracting personal details, and even multiple calls to build trust.
