Fraud and cyber crime make up nearly half of all crime committed in the UK and the best way to protect yourself from these types of crime is to follow simple crime prevention advice.
Victims of fraud in Hertfordshire are asked to report crimes via Action Fraud – a national centre, launched by the National Fraud Authority, providing a single point of contact for reporting all types of fraud, including investment, credit card and consumer fraud, as well as identity theft, doorstep fraud and online fraud.
To help you recognise and tackle fraud, Hertfordshire Constabulary has compiled this crime prevention advice to inform you of common and emerging frauds that are affecting people both nationally and locally, together with tips to help you stay safe.
