Help vulnerable people avoid scams


Solihull MBC’s Trading Standards Team are supporting and delivering a national initiative, which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities to “Take a Stand Against Scams”.

Friends Against Scams has been created to tackle the lack of scams awareness by providing information about scams and those who fall victim to them. This information enables communities and organisations to understand scams, talk about scams and cascade messages throughout communities about scams prevention and protection.

Solihull Trading Standards would like to encourage all people who may have contact with vulnerable people to become a Friend Against Scams.  You can do this online by attending one of the following short awareness sessions held in Committee Room 1, Civic Suite:

Friday 24th March 2pm – 3pm

Friday 7th April 2pm – 3pm

Friday 24th April 2pm – 3pm

You can book on to a session by emailing tradingstandards@solihull.gov.uk
