Below is an article from This Is Money featuring Thomas Wyness, who is a Scam Marshal. In the article, Thomas tells his story of being a scam victim and how the Scam Marshal scheme helped him fight back against the criminals.
Read his story here.
The team are looking to recruit as many Scam Marshals as possible in 2021 to help combat postal scams and would love to have your support. If you do have someone in mind, or encounter someone during your work, who is affected by postal scams and would like to turn the negative experience into a positive one, please share this article with them and encourage them to sign up as a Scam Marshal at www.FriendsAgainstScams.org.uk/ScamMarshals.
Each letter received by the team is investigated and used to disrupt the postal scams from reaching victims, so each Scam Marshal signed up has a knock on effect that helps prevent others becoming victims.
If you have any questions about the scheme, please email FriendsAgainstScams@surreycc.gov.uk.
