David Baddiel with a tale of how Rapunzel was scammed online

Poor Rapunzel. Not only is she having problems keeping her flowing locks tangle free but now she’s suffered from something far worse. She’s been scammed online.

She clicked on a rogue email falsely claiming it was from her hair roduct supplier. Naively she entered her bank details when asked to and alas her Christmas is doomed.

This rather grim tale is read to us by comedian David Baddiel which is a twist on the classic Rapunzel fairy tale. David himself knows people who have been scammed via email which is why he wanted to become involved.

“Having had a number of friends and family who have been duped by fraudsters, I decided to get involved in the Take Five campaign. Hopefully, these videos are a fun way of raising awareness of a serious issue. It’s no fairy tale being scammed.”  

The fairy tale is related to us in a tongue in cheek way but the message behind it is not so funny. People are finding their bank accounts comprimised and stolen from and it’s easier than you think to be conned.

The video s part of the Take Five campaign and has been produced by FFA UK who lead the fight against fraud in this country. Working with its members such as banks and credit card companies they publicise the risks of fraud and scamming that is become ever more sophisticated, especially when it comes to online. We all get scam emails popping into our inboxes on a daily basis and fraudsterz are find ever more devious and believable ways to take us in.
