Did you know you can now sign up for free to Action Fraud Alert to receive direct, verified, accurate information about scams and fraud in your area by email, recorded voice and text message?
The system is provided by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB). It uses the Neighbourhood Alert Platform, which is a secure, national community messaging facility used by the police, Neighbourhood and Home Watch, Crimestoppers, Fire & Rescue Services and local authorities throughout the UK.
How does it work?
By registering with Action Fraud Alert you will receive regular messages from Action Fraud about crime types that they think you would be interested in hearing about.
If your local police force is part of the Neighbourhood Alert system, you can also say if you would like to hear about other matters relating to the area in which you live and work.
Registering is free, simple and easy – follow the step-by-step instructions here. Once you have verified your account by responding to the verification email, you will be ready to receive alerts, based on the location you have provided and the things you have said are of interest to you.
