We're taking action across government to keep people safe from criminal fraudsters 👇

We're working with law enforcement & intelligence agencies to close down the routes they use to exploit people & bring them to justice.

Contact @ActionFraudUK for help & advice on protection.

Huge congratulations to @FigenMurray on receiving her OBE today. So well-deserved for her tireless campaigning in honour of Martyn for the Protect Duty, and for her critical efforts in education towards countering terrorism.

The Government is providing billions to support with the cost of living. Meanwhile shameless scammers will stop at nothing to pick the pockets of hard working families. If you suspect fraud, report it through @actionfrauduk #ScamAware

Today we reflect in memory of Joe Ritchie-Bennett, James Furlong and David Wails who lost their lives in the terrorist attack in Reading two years ago. My thoughts are with their families and loved ones, those injured, and everyone affected by this appalling act of terror.

Today we remember the life of Markram Ali who was killed in the Finsbury Park attack, five years ago today.
My thoughts are with his loved ones on this day, and all those that have been affected.

Today we remember the life, work and example of our colleague and friend Jo Cox, on the sixth anniversary of her death. 
Her kindness and values are an enduring reminder we have #MoreInCommon than divides us.

It was essential to have investigation, lessons learned and apology. We now must move forward, united and with focus on the country’s priorities and the challenges we face, not a destabilising leadership election. I will be voting for the PM tonight.

On the fifth anniversary of the London Bridge attack, we stand together to remember the lives cut tragically short that day. My thoughts are with the victims’ families and friends, and all affected.

My thoughts are with the family and friends of Fusilier Lee Rigby on the ninth anniversary of his death. We remember, too, the bravery of the firearms officers who responded to the attack.

Five years ago today, Manchester experienced a devastating attack at the heart of its community. Today, we come together to remember the 22 lives lost and show our support to their families and all those impacted.

Courier fraudsters typically claim to be a police officer or bank official when making an unsolicited phone call to their victim.

Stop and think before handing over any personal or financial information #courierfraud

🗣️Transparency is key in the fight against #childsexualabuse online.

At this session, the @tech_coalition will launch and discuss with experts from tech companies, civil society & governments its voluntary Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse Transparency Reporting Framework.

Criminals are experts at impersonating people. They spend hours researching you for their scams, especially when committing romance fraud.

Stop and think. It could protect you and your money. #RomanceFraud

There are new and evolving threats to the UK from foreign states seeking to divide us and undermine our national security.

Doing nothing is not an option.

That's why we're introducing the new National Security Bill, to protect our country, our interests and our values. ⤵️

We welcome new EU legislation published today to tackle online child sexual exploitation & abuse. Robust legislation is vital to strengthen collective responses to this horrific crime. We look forward to ongoing international cooperation on these key issues. #OnlineSafetyBill

Delighted to join @Lindy_Cameron for the @NCSC #CYBERUK in Wales to highlight the impact of cyber crime and what Government is doing to increase cyber resilience, including how a dedicated network of specialist officers are pursuing cyber criminals and protecting citizens.

It was an honour today to pay my respects to the Turkish nation, and lay a wreath at the mausoleum of the founder of the Republic of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

Cyber security – even in a time of global unrest – remains a balance of different risks.
