Most Britons don’t believe they would fall for a scam but unfortunately the fraud statistics tell a completely different story.

Britain has recently been named the fraud capital of the world after scammers conned victims out of a record £584m in 2021 – more than any other country.

While social media has improved Britons lives in many ways, scams which start on WhatsApp have increased by a staggering 2000 percent.

A mum from Dorset told ITV’s This Morning how she fell for the “the mum and dad WhatsApp scam”, when fraudsters impersonated her son and messaged her to ask for money.
