What cost of living payment scams do you need to watch out for?

The UK faces dire economic circumstances, with inflation at a 40-year high of 10.1 per cent and driving up the cost of consumer goods, wages dropping 3 per cent in value between April and June and a bleak winter of spiralling energy bills on the horizon.

 

With the Tory leadership contest still unresolved and outgoing prime minister Boris Johnson seemingly seeing out his premiership from the beaches of Greece, no meaningful help for the British people looks likely before 6 September.

 

Such desperate circumstances make for ideal conditions for scammers, with one recent report warning that £1.3bn was stolen from British consumers in 2021, up from £1.2bn a year earlier, and that 140,000 calls have been put into Stop Scams UK’s dedicated helpline since it was launched last September. Here is how you can avoid being ripped off.

Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
