South Wales Police say they're warning Welsh Muslims about scammers targeting people making the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
The UK-wide campaign is aiming to raise awareness and encourage reporting of Hajj fraud within Muslim communities throughout the UK.
Fraudsters targeting Muslims booking trips to Mecca to celebrate Hajj remains a problem across the country, a spokesperson said.
Police have released these figures to illustrate the scale of the problem.
- Up to 25,000 British Muslims travel for Hajj each year
- British Muslims spend as much as £125 million on pilgrimages annually
- Police have reports of victims losing anything from £1,000-£33,000
- The Council of British Hajjis estimates that the number of victims reporting to Action Fraud is as little as 3%
