Fraud Protection Advice

Ashley Jones is the Regional Fraud Protect Advisor employed by the South West Regional Organised Crime Unit (SWROCU), a Home Office funded, Law Enforcement body serving all the police force areas of the South West of England. For more information on the SWROCU, you may wish to visit our website:

The Little Book of Big Scams - attached below - is an excellent fraud prevention resource, created to help raise awareness of the dangers of fraud and offer preventative measures to help keep everyone safe from the insidious creep we are seeing in financial crimes in recent years.

An audio version of the Little Book of Big Scams can be found at this link:

A fraud safety presentation is also available to residents on Youtube: 


In addition to the provision of standard fraud protection sessions, Ashley Jones is also able to offer training that has been customised for individuals/groups that have frequent contact with potentially vulnerable community members and may benefit from specialised training, to help identify the signs and symptoms of financial exploitation and what steps they should take to ameliorate the situation.

These sessions are particularly valuable for individuals or teams who frequently encounter and interact with the groups of citizens most likely to be targeted by frauds, such as; the elderly, disabled, those with some form of cognitive impairment, or those impacted by other socio-economic circumstances, such as loneliness and isolation.

Ashley will attend team meetings, etc. with all the required presentation equipment (or virtually via Zoom/Skype/Teams/etc. He can be available for meetings in both the daytime and evening as required – there is no charge whatever for these presentations, as they are delivered as part of a public service.
