Article preview: Personal finance commentator Martin Lewis has criticised the government for failing to include scams in the new Online Harms Bill. Lewis called the omission ‘laughable’ and ‘embarrassing’, as the failure to address scams in legislation is leaving vulnerable people as easy prey for fraudsters. The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute, where Lewis is a founder, says the government is making a mistake by not including scam protection in the Bill. He believes the government should give its new online watchdog powers to stop online businesses from enabling scams.
