Which? response to Scottish government’s programme for government

Caroline Normand, Which? Director of Advocacy, said:

“Scottish consumers are at risk of being targeted every day by ruthless fraudsters using increasingly sophisticated tactics online, over the phone and face-to-face – and people are losing life-changing sums of money as a result.

“We welcome these ambitious plans for Consumer Scotland to start tackling consumer harm and the decision to make scams a top priority, to ensure that the Scottish government, businesses and the authorities are working together to eliminate this daily threat to people in Scotland.”
