Barclays is holding a fraud awareness event at its Wisbech branch to help give advice on safe banking and protecting from rogue traders.
The event is on Friday October 12 from 9.30am-4.30pm.
Chris Channell, deputy community banking director for Norfolk and Suffolk, said: “Fraudsters can try to trick people in many different ways, at a cash machine, by email, text, phone or on-line often posing as somebody from a trusted organisation.
“Barclays fraud awareness events can help people from becoming a victim of fraud and give them the opportunity to ask questions and gain an understanding of the importance of keeping safe from the range of scams in existence.
“We work closely with both the police and trading standards and our branch colleagues continue to be vigilant and will often question customers if they feel they could be under duress when asking to withdraw large sums of money, especially the elderly.”
