Scheme Disbanded September 2014

Amroth Area Good Neighbours was formed by Pembrokeshire County Council in February 2011 to provide a support network for residents in the area.

There has never been a great demand for our services, in 44 mths we have had only about 18 calls for help and none in the last 6mths.

Therefore and at our AGM this September we came to the conclusion that as there was little demand for our services we would disband.

Clearly there is a good support network in the area from family and friends for our residents.

If You are a Victim of Fraud


What should you do if you think you have become a victim of fraud?

Action Fraud is the UK’s national fraud reporting centre where you should report fraud if you have been scammed or defrauded.

We provide a central point of contact for information about fraud and financially motivated internet crime. People are scammed, ripped off or conned every day and we want this to stop. We believe that we can beat fraud if we talk about it.

The service is run by the National Fraud Authority – the government agency that helps to co-ordinate the fight against fraud in the UK. We work with partners in law enforcement - the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, run by the City of London Police - to make sure your fraud reports reach the right place

Report fraud and internet crime

You can report fraud using our online fraud reporting service any time of the day or night; the service enables you to both report a fraud and find help and support. We also provide help and advice over the phone through the Action Fraud contact centre. You can talk to our fraud specialists by calling 0300 123 2040.

Reports taken are passed to the police who may contact you for further information. Action Fraud does not investigate the cases and cannot advise you on the progress of a case.
