There is a way for residents across North Yorkshire to find out about fraud.

  • A new Facebook page has been set up.
  • Police are asking people to share the information that is posted on the page.
  • It's hoped it will alert people to current scams, so that people don't get caught out.

North Yorkshire Police has set up a new Facebook page to raise awareness about fraud in the county.

It will give information on the most recent scams and advice on how to stay safe.

It has been set up by PCSO Nathan Stuart, who told Stray FM:

"This is information that's going to be given that covers nationwide issues; from the tax scams fraud awareness, the HMRC scams, pressing one when people call you and local information such as fraudulent currency that's been used recently in North Yorkshire.

"So it's just somewhere where all of the county can come together for one bit of information.

"What we're asking people to do is share; share the information that we've got.

"Digitally is easy, hit the share button on Facebook and share it across your platforms.

"If you've got relatives or friends and family that are of the older generation, let them know verbally; tell them what's going on, what's going on in the area.

"It helps bring the communities together as well."
