As you know there’s been quite a bit of press about this. So we thought it would be important to provide simple and straightforward guidance about what it was, how to avoid it and what to do if such a scam was suspected. Hence the following (with links):
- For professionals – a ‘heads up’ included in the latest July Benefit Bulletin and to other local networks
- For public and staff:(www.newcastle.gov.uk/UniversalCreditScams)
- A short animated video
- Council Facebook item here and here linking back to the special webpage
Please let Clive Davis at Newcastle City Council know if you think the webpage information could be improved as they can always change it.Follow @GMWRAGtweets
