In the Catch22Minutes podcast, we delve into some of today’s major social challenges. We speak to frontline experts, industry leaders and young people, in pursuit of ideas for reforming public services.

With the recent release of our manifesto: 22 ways to build resilience and aspiration in people and communities, our fourth season focuses on some of our key policy asks. It is presented by Catch22’s Head of Policy and Campaigns, Stella Tsantekidou.

In this episode of Catch22Minutes, Stella is joined by Dr Elisabeth Carter, a Criminologist and Forensic Linguist, and Associate Professor at Kingston University. Dr Carter analyses communications between fraudsters and victims to understand how people can become victims of this crime, and uses her findings to improve victim support.

Stella and Dr Carter discuss what romance fraud is, the tactics used by criminals, the impact it has on its victims, and who should be responsible for protecting the public from this crime.
