NatWest launches All Mod Cons board game to educate public about scams
NatWest has launched a board game called All Mod Cons designed to educate the British public about modern scams.
All Mod Cons sees players make their way around the board with the aim of holding onto their money while avoiding scams. The game draws on NatWest data and aims to encourage family discussions and equip players with crucial information on how to detect, avoid and report scams.
According to NatWest data, the most prevalent scams – which all feature in the game – are phishing, receiving fake emails, calls or messages asking you to provide personal information and impersonation scams.
The game will be available to play in select NatWest branches and was created by a team of game developers, in partnership with the bank’s fraud team.
“The festive season is a time to spend with family having fun, but the fun can quickly end if one of you is hit by a scam,” said Stuart Skinner, Fraud Expert at NatWest.
“Our ‘All Mod Cons’ campaign has been created to help increase knowledge of scams by getting people talking and learning about them, which is a major step in combatting them.”
