Scams awareness month runs this month with the campaign theme of “Don’t be rushed, don’t be hushed!”
The campaign aims to highlight the fact that people are often socially engineered into being scammed, and scammers flourish when victims remain silent about being duped.
Social engineering is where scammers persuade their victims to give up sensitive personal information, or persuade people to take actions that puts them at risk of being scammed.
