July is the official month to raise awareness of scams and the effect they can have on millions of people worldwide every day.
Northern Ireland is no different and recently, the Commissioner for Older People in Northern Ireland, Eddie Lynch, visited BCM's Wednesday Lunch Club to chat about the prevalence of scams and how the older people in attendance could and should be more aware.
We asked Eddie to come and chat to 'Because Caring Matters' about scams and what our listeners should be vigilant for.

Our thanks to Eddie for coming into the studio: https://www.copni.org/
