A campaign to raise awareness of scams targeting people during the coronavirus pandemic has the support of Linlithgow and East Falkirk MP Martyn Day.

Scam Awareness Fortnight runs until June 28 and is focusing on raising awareness of the scams which have emerged as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Mr Day said: “Scams are taking many forms, including illicit pension transfers that syphon money into criminal accounts, bogus high-return investment opportunities, and the sale of worthless health supplements and safety equipment that is never delivered.“During the Covid-19 pandemic, more scams have been reported to Trading Standards. Make sure you don’t fall for their tricks. Be scam aware.“Follow Citizens Advice Scotland for the latest advice.”
