Don’t Let Fraudsters Abuse the COVID Support
Following measures to reduce the severity of COVID social distancing on the UK economy, the government announced financial stimulus packages, including grants and loans, to help those struggling financially during the ‘lockdown’ period.
So far, a total of 150 COVID stimulus schemes have been set up by the Government.
Sadly, a minority of individuals have fraudulently taken advantage of schemes through illegally claiming loans and grants at the expense of Her Majesty’s Government and you, the taxpayer.
We believe everyone has the right to feel safe from crime, wherever they live, wherever they work, for ourselves and all those we care about.
But sometimes people might be worried about a crime, or something that’s wrong, and want to pass on information. Which is why it’s good to know they can always trust Crimestoppers.
They are an independent charity that gives people the power to speak up and stop crime, 100% anonymously. By phone and online, 24/7, 365 days a year.
No police contact. No witness statements. No courts.
Every year they help stop and solve thousands of crimes. Now we want to tackle COVID fraud and help protect the public purse from fraudster abuse.
