Care Homes Partner with Building Society as Part of Fraud Prevention Week

Cambridge Manor and Cherry Hinton Care Home partnered with The Cambridge Building Society to offer a scam awareness talk as part of Fraud Awareness Week, last week.

Amber Christou, Business Development Manager at Cambridge Manor Care Home reached out to the company after a conversation with a resident who has sadly been a victim to scams in the past. Amber wanted to know if they could work together to offer a talk that would deliver vital information in staying safe, especially during the winter periods, when scams seem to be on the rise.

In these trying economic times, when financial crimes are more enticing and prevalent than ever, it’s crucial to stay sharp.

Financial Crime Officer at The Cambridge Building Society, Tristan Katanica, said: “We take the protection of our members and people in the community very seriously and supporting International Fraud Awareness Week is one of several initiatives we take part in.”

“Being aware and keeping vigilant is half the battle in safeguarding against potential fraud, which is why we want to provide as much support as possible for everyone to know what to look out for and what to do.”

Amber Christou, Business Development Manager, said “It’s important to offer talks of this nature, not only to our residents but to members of the local community as well. We are very happy with the informative information delivered by Tristan and the rest of the team and will continue to offer this invaluable talk every so often”

Scott Brooker, Business Development Manager at Cherry Hinton Care Home said: “working together with Cambridge Building Society has been fantastic. The services they offer the local community are amazing and we look forward to working together in the future.”
