‘Scam Bingo’ launched to raise awareness of fraud risks
You may know her best for playing Marlene in the sitcom classic Only Fools and Horses, but these days Sue Holderness has turned her hand to bingo – and it’s not for the reasons you might think…
Research from UK Finance has shown that despite the majority of over-65s claiming they always check whether a request for money is legitimate, scammers continue to target the age group.
In response, a free to play ‘Scam Bingo’ game has been developed by UK Finance’s Take Five to Stop Fraud campaign to educate people about common fraud – and Sue will be hosting the events as bingo caller around the country.
London Live spoke to Sue and Katy Worobec from UK Finance about the game – and what common scam signs to look out for.
