Phone Scam Graphic

Scams online and via telephone are increasingly inventive and a serious risk to the unwary.

Please help the elderly and vulnerable know how to spot them and avoid becoming a victim.

Apparently, many such hoax phone calls have been reported to AVDC in the last few weeks.

Please help educate and inform others, especially those who are unlikely to be accessing this website.
