In KS3 PSHE lessons children learn how to handle their money. One aspect of this is being able to recognise, and be on guard against, financial exploitation. In this quiz, written specifically for children in years 7, 8 and 9, we look in depth at this topic.
Financial exploitation is a crime but what exactly is it? Well, it is when your money is taken by deception or other means rather than by out and out theft. Though deception is the most common form of financial exploitation, threats of violence are also used.
Financial exploitation is all around us: online, on your phone, at your doorstep or just about anywhere else. That being the case, you must always be on your guard against it.
