Cyber Resilience and Internet Safety

This guide was created to support online safety training for kinship carers in Scotland. It will be valued by all parents and carers across Scotland. It can be used to support children of any age, but it has a particular focus on the digital resilience of teenagers. This is because of the particular challenges we face keeping adolescents - who are more independent - safe online.

If you have any concerns for a child’s safety and child sexual abuse, then please take action now. Stop It Now!’s confidential UK Helpline (0808 1000 900) is open Monday to Friday, and available for anyone with concerns about child sexual abuse. Callers do not need to give identifying information, so can remain anonymous. 

07 May 2021Telephone Scam

The scam involves criminals contacting local people by telephone,claiming to be from a service provider such as an internet or mobile phone provider. They go on to dupe the victim into believing that their mobile phone has been hacked and, in order to free up the phone, they must download and install an app in order to remove the ‘spyware’.

The criminals then talk the unsuspecting victim through the process of‘setting up’ the app. What they are really doing is enabling themselves to clone the victim’s mobile phone with all of their passwords and login information neatly saved into the rogue app allowing them to make purchases through any bank cards saved on the phone and even access online accounts.

 This scam has ccaught people in our local community.
