This Friday, 25th November 2022, marks the biggest shopping event of the year. The hunt will be on for the best deals ahead of Christmas.
However, shoppers are being urged to remain cautious of online scams, with young people aged between 19 and 25 most at risk. The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) revealed that £15.3million was lost to scams during the festive period last year, with the average loss being £1,000. 
Fraudsters can be articulate and financially knowledgeable. They may have credible websites, testimonials and materials that are hard to distinguish from the real thing. They can come in many forms, but all are designed to get hold of your money.
