Derbyshire residents are being encouraged to head into cyber space and put their fraud and scam questions to the experts.
As part of the force wide Stamp out Fraud action week, an online discussion is being held to give people the opportunity to gain crime prevention advice and support from the experts.
The virtual surgery will be launched today (May 21) where people can log in between 6pm and 8pm to ask questions or develop their knowledge on how to stay safe from fraudsters.
You can ask questions anonymously and the panel will either respond in the chat session or through a private conversation. If you don’t have a question, you can also log in and see the live chat in action.
The surgery will be hosted by members of the Economic Crime Unit as part of Derbyshire Constabulary’s Stamp out Fraud week which runs from Monday May 19 to Saturday May 24.
The week-long drive will see Community Safety officers and Safer Neighbourhood teams across the force heading out into the local communities to advise residents about the steps that they can take to protect themselves from the crime.
To log on to the surgery go to www.derbyshire.police.uk/stampoutfraud or use the chat facility below.
