About the course

This is a threat that thrives on individuals’ emotions and greed and is therefore a potential risk to all employees within any organisation. An advance-fee fraud scam tricks victims into paying money up front on the false hope of receiving a large windfall later.

The approach can be made by letter, fax, email or telephone and invariably these appear to come from high ranking government or bank officials. This module introduces Advance Fee Frauds and explains how they work and what to look out for.

This module covers…

  • An introduction to Advanced Fee Frauds scams
  • How to avoid becoming a victim
  • The potential consequences of being a victim
  • Where to go for help if you become a victim
