Millions of Britons are being targeted by organised criminal gangs using the latest mass marketing techniques to defraud them of an estimated £3.5 billion a year. That's the warning today as organisations across the world join together in a global day of action and awareness to fight back against the criminals behind the scams.
The biggest ever Silver Surfers’ Day will help more older people get online and reap the benefits of the internet.
The day will see 1,500 hands-on events across the UK exclusively for older people. The events are suitable for total novices, providing older people with a gentle introduction to using a computer and a taste of what getting online has to offer.
