The Dutch government is to launch a national campaign to combat digital fraud amid concerns over crimes related to online gambling.

Franc Weerwind, Netherlands’ minister for legal protection, announced a multi-year digital resilience campaign programme to combat fraud associated with online gambling.

Weerwind explained the rationale behind the campaign in response to concerns raised by fellow parliamentarians over match-fixing via social media.

Weerwind said the campaign will initially be aimed at young people. In particular, messaging will help them recognise scams and offers that appear too good to be true.
