Answered By: 
The Mayor

Organised by officers from Operation FALCON, Safer Schools Officers (SSO's) from across London attended awareness training on fraud last year. Materials developed by Operation FALCON are disseminated by SSO's to schools and young people at risk. These materials aim to raise awareness and promote behavioural change around some common fraud types, including Money Mules (video can be accessed via YouTube Link), Payment Fraud, Computer Software Service Fraud, Romance/Dating Fraud and Online Shopping Fraud.
