A scam is an attempt by a person or organisation to mislead you into giving them money by telling you something which is not true.

If you are confronted by something that you suspect may be a scam, keep the following checklist in mind: 

  • Stop - If something seems too good to be true, it probably is
  • Check - Where is the offer from? Do you have an address?
  • Privacy - Don't give away personal details about yourself
  • Money - Never pay in advance for some promise of a huge payoff in the future.


The Police have produced a booklet which explains some of the most common scams and offers advice - Little Book of Big Scams (3.85mb PDF)​​​​​​​Link opens in a new window .
