Beware of Coronavirus Scams

Posted on: March 30, 2020

Essex Police have issued a warning residents to:

“Be vigilant following reports that fraudsters are attempting to take advantage of the current climate by carrying out crime online and at people’s doorsteps.

“Fraudsters will go to extreme lengths to get access to your hard earned money, including posing as government officials by text message, online or by knocking at doors.”

You can read the full statement on the Essex Police website.


Friends Against Scams have produced an easy-to-use guide on how to protect yourself and others against coronavirus scams.

The PDF guide can be downloaded by clicking on the image below, and we recommend sharing this with your staff and service users:
