Longhurst Group to offer Friends Against Scams training to all colleagues
18 November 2021
Longhurst Group has pledged its support for a new initiative which aims to encourage people to tackle the issue of scams.
We've agreed to support Friends Against Scams by encouraging our team of more than 1,200 colleagues to undertake training to become 'Friends' and help the nation to 'Take a Stand Against Scams.'
Friends Against Scams is a National Trading Standards Scams Team initiative which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities and businesses.
By attending a ‘Friends Against Scams’ awareness session or completing the online training, our colleagues will learn about the different types of scams and how to spot and support a victim.
With increased knowledge and awareness, colleagues will be even better equipped to advise and protect our customers - and others - from scams.
For more information and advice on scams – and further details on how we help our customers to avoid falling victim to them – please visit our scam awareness information page here.
