“Staying safe online is about ensuring you are aware of the risks and having security measures and protection in place so you don’t leave yourself vulnerable to online scammers, bullies and criminals.

"All the key advice can be found on this section of our website, and I hope people will let us know about any new scams they come across so we can make others aware too."
