UPDATE ON THE NANNY SCAM

There is an organisation in the UK which you can contact if you have either been in contact with the crooks that perpetuate this scam or if you have actually been defrauded from your money.

The organisation is called: Action Fraud and they are linked to the British Government. This is what they do:

"Action Fraud is the UK’s national fraud reporting centre.

We provide a central point of contact for information about fraud. People are scammed, ripped off or conned everyday and we want this to stop. We believe that we can beat fraud if we talk about it.

The service is run by the National Fraud Authority – the government agency that helps to co-ordinate the fight against fraud in the UK.

Our online fraud reporting service is available 24 hours a day, enabling you to report a fraud and find help and support. We also provide help and advice over the phone through the Action Fraud contact centre. You can talk to our fraud specialists by calling 0300 123 2040.

Reports taken are passed to the police who may contact you for further information. Action Fraud does not investigate the cases and cannot advise you on the progress of a case."
