Fraud awareness event being held in Borehamwood

Police Community Support Officers and staff from Barclays are running a fraud awareness event in Borehamwood, on Wednesday, May 27th.

Everyone is welcome to attend the event, which will be held at Maxwell Community Centre, between 11am and 1pm. Officers will be joined by staff from the bank, who will be giving presentations about scams that are currently affecting people across the area, including phone and bank fraud.

As well as raising awareness around fraud, the bank staff and officers will be able to provide advice about safe banking and measures that can be taken to avoid becoming a victim to fraud.

Refreshments will be provided courtesy of Tesco, Shenley Road, Borehamwood and there will be a number of leaflets that people can take away with them to help remind themselves of the crime prevention advice offered.

PCSO, Natalie Pearman who organised the event with Barclays, said: "This is a great opportunity for local residents to learn about a number of scams currently operating in the county and take sensible, yet simple, measures to help themselves avoid becoming victims of such crimes.

"Not only is this an ideal chance for people to take advice on board first hand, they can also then go back to their relatives, friends and neighbours armed with the latest information and help them become fraud aware too."

Eula Clarke, Branch Manager at Barclays Borehamwood, said: "At Barclays we are working closely with the community and police to try to prevent people being caught out by rogue traders and fraudsters.

"Colleagues in our branches continue to be vigilant and will often question customers if they feel they could be under duress when asking to withdraw large sums of money, especially the elderly.

"We hope this event will help to raise awareness of the different kinds of fraud and scams in existence."

For those wishing to attend, the address is: Maxwell Community Centre, Maxwell Road, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire WD6 1JJ,
