Police provided advice on how to prevent frauds and scams as part of a national campaign.
Engagement events were held at a number of locations throughout Sussex during Adult Safeguarding Week, which ran from 20-24 November.
As well as offering support, police officers and fraud volunteers also distributed literature including The Little Book of Big scams, The Little Booklet of Phone Scams and The Little Leaflet of Cyber Scams.
In addition to this, a series of online tutorials were held with the NHS and partners, which offered valuable advice on how to protect yourself from financial abuse.
Bernie Lawrie, Financial Abuse Safeguarding Officer, said: “Members of the public were happy to see our presence and actively engaged us throughout the week.
“In particular, we offered information and advice in tackling fraud and scams during the festive period and beyond, including online shopping, staying cyber safe and phone scams.
“Frauds and scams can range from simple tricks to sophisticated online targeting, and it’s important to recognise the signs so you don’t fall victim to them.”
