Church of Ireland backs Scamwise NI campaign

The Church of Ireland is backing the Scamwise NI campaign, through the Church Leaders Group, to keep people safe from scams.

In any year, most people will be targeted in an attempt to scam them out of money, but if you can spot a scam, you can stop it too.

Check out the information and resources, including advice from An Garda Síochána, at this link which seeks to help parishes to equip parishioners and their family, friends and neighbours so that they can prevent scams and seek assistance if they become a victim of a scam.

This new video, which you can watch below, from the Consumer Council for Northern Ireland in partnership with Scamwise NI, highlights 15 common examples of scams during the pandemic which are operating on both sides of the border.
