Shocking Facts

Scam mail is now a serious and endemic problem which is causing financial and mental devastation to millions of silent victims of fraud.

Money sent to scams could end up being used to keep a criminal in a luxury lifestyle but international organised criminal gangs sometimes use the money they have gleaned to fund the drug trade, gun crime, human trafficking and other crimes worldwide.
In 2008 a survey conducted by Help the Aged and Barclays revealed that seven out of ten older people in Britain – more than 6.6m people – are targeted by scams every month, either by telephone or letter.

22,000 victims replied to one scam mail shot and sent £500,000 in one day!

20 pensioners in Cornwall collectively sent £350,000 to criminals who work in organised gangs!

Catalogue Scams

Vital Beauty, Vital Nature, Vitamail, Afibel, Best Of, Fredrich Mueller, Phyderma, Elisa Jewels, Star Shopping, Delices & Gourmandises, Biotonic & many other catalogues based abroad have been deceiving honest and trusting people out of millions of pounds for years. They make it appear like the customer is only one order away from a guaranteed prize. Unfortunately the prize never arrives; instead the victim gets bombarded with more false promises and phone calls. Watch BBCs “Inside Out South” on “Your Stories” page to learn the shocking truth behind catalogue scams.

Read “Your Stories” to learn how confused and worried victims are taking out bank loans to pay criminal gangs and how others are making regular Money Gram and Western Union money transfers to criminals abroad.
