Scams Against The Vulnerable

EDM number 1156 in 2013-14, proposed by Paul Flynn on 10/03/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Consumers, Crime, Elderly people, Internet and cybercrime and Telecommunications.

That this House congratulates Age Cymru on its timely and vital campaign to protect vulnerable older people in Wales from scams, such as postal scams, nuisance calls, investment scams, fake PPI recovery offers, internet repair scammers, courier scams and internet scams; and calls for the Government to examine the case for drastically increasing the scope and the scale of No Cold Calling zones to protect older people from rogue traders and high pressure salespeople on their doorstep and for internet service providers to work with other service and product providers to supply easily and affordably higher levels of security capable of blocking or quarantining scams.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
