Beat scams

Become a Scam Marshal

A Scam Marshal is any resident in the UK who has been targeted by a scam and now wants to fight back and take a stand against scams. Scam Marshals do this by sharing their own experiences, helping others to report and recognise scams and sending any scam mail that they receive to the NTS Scams Team so that it can be utilised as evidence in future investigative and enforcement work. This work plays an important role in helping to stop the scam mail altogether.

If you or anyone you know has been affected by scams and wish to register an interest in becoming a Scam Marshal please contact the Trading Standards Team by calling 03451 55 55 55 extension 440441 for more information.
