Telecommunications UK Fraud Forum (TUFF) and Financial Fraud Action UK have joined together and released two videos to create awareness among public. The new campaign named as “The Devil’s in Your Details”, purposed to reduce fraud and help raise awareness on the threats that lurk behind every received email or phone call.
Recognising the growing threat of fraud, Government has come together with leading industry players to help people better protect themselves. In the first campaign of its kind involving both the private and public sectors, The Devil’s in Your Details campaign brings together Action Fraud, The Telecommunications UK Fraud Forum (TUFF) and Financial Fraud Action UK - the name under which the financial services industry coordinates its fraud prevention activity, in a powerful demonstration of what can be achieved when industry and government work together.
