The Wales Against Scams Partnership (WASP) is a partnership of organisations that are commitmed to fight against scams and fraud.
WASP was founded jointly by Age Cymru and the Older People’s Commissioner for Wales with the aim of making Wales more hostile to those who would scam older and vulnerable people. Its members includes Trading Standards, Scambusters, Get Safe Online, Welsh police forces, Welsh Local Government Association, the Information Commissioner’s Office, and Barclays Bank, Lloyds Bank, Halifax and British Gas.
The group’s aim is to make Wales a safer place for vulnerable people by working as a partnership of organisations that can influence change in areas where scammers currently operate. This includes on the doorstep, by phone, by post and online.
WASP has produced a charter which sets out the commitments we have collectively made to build a Wales that is more hostile to scams.
