New tool to help those affected by scams

A new online tool launched was this week called BogusBuster, which helps consumers who are the victims of scams and who fall for fake products to claim their money back from online marketplaces.

The tool includes step by step instructions and also offers consumers an option for feedback if they are trying to assess whether a site or product is legitimate. Computer tips are also included for those getting to grips with technology, and it provides links to many sites offering detailed support as well as the contact details for reporting fraud for all major UK banks. Many infographics are on offer to illustrate the points

BogusBuster is co-funded by InnovateUK and is a result of the Business-led innovation in response to global disruption project.
