Scamming awareness for community groups
We're kicking off 2016 with a brand new tour of our community engagement piece School for Scammers for Havering Safer Neighbourhood Board!
‘Scamming’ is a confidence trick, swindle or other fraudulent scheme used to con innocent people, often for a quick profit. Scamming can be carried out by a huge variety of means, including phone, post, online and door-to-door, and can happen to anyone – not just to the more vulnerable people in today’s society.
School for Scammers tells the story of the Carmichael family: Don Carmichael has been released from prison after serving time for a number of offences, mostly involving theft and burglary.

School for Scammers is a humorous and thought-provoking one-hour Forum Theatre and multi-media performance programme for audiences of up to 100 at a time. Currently touring Havering community groups until spring 2016, contact us at Arc to find out how we can work with your community groups - email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Arc on 020 8595 8509.
