Campaign against psychic scammers launched in Dundee

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

The Office of Fair Trading has launched a new initiative in Dundee aimed at tracking down and convicting fraudulent psychics who target their victims through the mail.

Trading standards officers have placed blue "Scamnesty" bins in community buildings, where members of the public are being urged to dump any scam mail they receive. The OFT will then then use the letters to help them track down those behind the scams, which also include bogus prize draws, sweepstakes, lotteries and medical cures.
