Some tips from Sussex Police to help keep you safe from scams:

Watch out for scam emails and text messages: don't click or open anything you think looks suspicious, or reply or respond to anything asking you for your personal or financial details.

If you're shopping online: try to use sites you or someone you trust has used before and you know are reputable.

If you're making a purchase and can use a credit card, use it - as most major credit card providers insure online purchases against fraud.

Don't buy goods on the doorstep.

Protect your devices by installing the latest software updates.
