Advice Direct Scotland are encouraging consumers to steer clear of the catfish to avoid being scammed on and around Valentine’s Day 2023.

Throughout the week commencing Monday the 13th of February, we will share our top tips on avoiding being caught out by pretend love interests on dating apps; bogus ads selling goods and services online; and fake get-rich quick schemes, including cryptocurrency scams.

The campaign will focus on the practical things that consumers can do to avoid being caught out and show what support is available in situations where we are.
