The Office of Fair Trading in the UK holds its Scam Awareness Month during February. It was mentioned last night (Wednesday) on the BBC program 'Watchdog' during a segment about Psychic scammers

So far, I've only found reference to it happening last year on their web site

In America when we have "awareness months" someone usually organizes a parade or fun run. So does this mean we will be chasing all the scammers down the avenues shouting "Western Union, the Scammers choice!". Very Happy
