Scams are schemes designed to con you out of your money. They can come in varying formats and in different ways. They usually come via post, phone calls or emails but they are not limited to this. You may have heard of stories in the past about different scams, for example fake lotteries and prize draws, get-rich-quick schemes, investment scams etc. These scams can cost people lots of money, often hundreds or thousands of pounds.
