DGHP was a partner in the recent launch of the Financial Crime Strategy for Dumfries and Galloway. During the launch, an action plan intended to tackle the perpetration of financial abuse head on – including theft, fraud and other scams – was announced.

The strategy is aimed at encouraging people to start conversations with their own families, friends and neighbours about the risk of financial harm and the dangers that scams pose. The health and wellbeing of our communities, in particular where there are vulnerabilities, is important to everyone and the aim in getting the strategy launched is to encourage everyone to work together to help keep our communities safe.

Everyone involved in delivering public services in the region will be working to reduce the likelihood of crime in our area and Police Scotland and partners will be sharing information about the most recent scams to help people avoid falling victim.

If you have any concerns about financial harm or are concerned about someone help and advice can be sought though your local community policing officer or through contacting Trading Standards at the local council or through your bank or building society.

Some recent scams include –

  • a TV licensing scam with fake emails and text
  • an HMRC tax return scam, again over text and email
  • a Council tax scam
  • an Amazon email scam
  • a British Gas email scam
