There was a time when the only scam you had to worry about was a badly spelled email from a deposed African prince seeking to share his fortune with you, provided you first sent him £50,000 to help him get it out of the country.
Sadly, with the arrival of the internet and social media, the dangers have grown a thousand times greater.
Scams and ‘fake news’ are everywhere, and we have a responsibility to put our clients on red alert.
