Crime Prevention

West Mercia Police, working closely with colleagues in the Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) have produced The Little Book of Big Scams. 

The book covers everything from fraud enablers, types of fraud and what to do if you get scammed. Many of the traditional frauds remain a threat to us all however the prevalence of the digital world now has opened the door to new types of online fraud and new types of risk.
