Consumer Direct are running what they call a Scamnesty – Between the 1-26 February 2010, Scamnesty bins will be placed around the country in public places so you can bin those pesky scam letters you have received in the post.

As well as letters and mailers some scammers send emails, text messages or will call you at your home. Now you can report these phone calls and forward your suspected scam emails and websites and help us beat the scammers!

There are 4 bins close to the University Library at

  • Southsea Community Centre , PO5 4EE
  • Central Library , PO1 2DX
  • Civic Offices, PO1 2AL
  • John Pounds Centre , PO1 3HN
