Do we need online fraud classes in schools?

There's been a record number of incidents of identity theft, according to the fraud prevention organisation CIFAS. It says there were over 170,000 incidents in 2016 and that young people are particularly vulnerable due to their active social media accounts online.

Mike Haley, deputy chief executive of CIFAS, tells Today we need to have classes embedded in the national curriculum to teach young people how to avoid being targeted online and how to protect personal information.
