ACTION FRAUD

Action Fraud is the UK’s national online and phone helpline for reporting fraud and internet crime, and offers advice to the public. Below website contains many tips and advice to protect yourself from fraud as an excellent service.

 Also, there is a very interesting  write-up about Action Fraud (below link) which explains a lot about this organisation.  It is how the police gathers information about fraud (scams, one example).  Its aim is to work with the public to gather intelligence and will report back to protect the public.
