Around 30 people attended a session on online shopping scams at the Luxembourg House of Cybersecurity. Steve Muller, BEE SECURE’s cybersecurity expert, revealed how criminals attempt fraud and suggested some simple measures that everyone can take to avoid such scams. 

This event was organised by BEE SECURE, the GoldenMe non-profit organisation, the European Consumer Centre Luxembourg (ECC), and the Luxembourg Consumer Association (ULC). Members from all of these organisations were on hand to answer questions from the public. Rewatch the presentation on online scams.
