That this House recognises that May 2013 is Scams Awareness Month; believes scams to be crimes, the majority of which go unreported by victims despite the distressing consequences often caused; acknowledges that estimates show that in Scotland 48 per cent of people have been targeted by scammers leading to a loss of £350 million every year; understands that scammers and fraudsters use a variety of ways to con people out of money including post, telephone, online or in person; knows that the Citizens Advice consumer service dealt with over 4,000 scam cases in Scotland in 2012; considers that consumers should be able to access information to be empowered to spot and report scams; values the Citizens Advice service in Scotland in providing such information and advice to consumers and helping to raise awareness of scams throughout communities across the country; and congratulates organisations in North Ayrshire including North Ayrshire Citizens Advice Service using this opportunity to ensure that the people of the area are made aware of how they can protect themselves from scammers in the future.
