Scammers are sadly still at large and despite the current climate, its sad to believe that there are still people out there who insist on exploiting innocent people for their own gains.  Take care and be vigilant because it’s happening on a daily basis.  

There are the obvious ones, text messages from HMRC asking you to collect your tax rebate and the outrageous pension scamming, but there are now also text messages from Royal Mail claiming that they are withholding post until a postage fee is paid.  These are just a few examples of the most common scams affecting everyone within the UK.
