In this month's edition, we're raising awareness of Springtime HMRC tax scams, Fake Tesco vouchers being circulated on Facebook, AOL phishing scams and ongoing Instagram scams.
Fraudsters are claiming to be from Action Fraud contacting people in order to steal personal and financial details.
We would urge people to not click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails, and to never respond to messages that ask for personal or financial details
Under no circumstances will Action Fraud, or a police force, ask you to make a payment in order to recover money that you may have lost.
At least one fake number has been identified relating to this scam and Action Fraud are working with their disruptions team to close this down.
