Weekly Fraud Update – West Mercia Police

SAFER INTERNET DAY –  7th  February 2023

 Safer Internet Day this year is based on the theme of:

 “Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations online”

What is it ?  

 It is co-ordinated by the UK Safer Internet Centre to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. It is their voices that need to be heard on the day, and they are encouraged to help shape the online safety support they want to receive.

Who can be involved?

 Teachers, parents and carers alike are asked to take time to listen to these children and young people and help to make a positive change together.

Take Five To Stop Fraud 

  • Stop: Taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.
  • Challenge: Could it be fake? It’s okay to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.
  • Protect: If you think you’ve been a victim of fraud, contact your bank immediately and report it to Action Fraud online at actionfraud.police.uk or by calling 0300 123 2040.
