Scam Alert!

Scam Alert!

Residents in Leicestershire have reported to trading standards that an individual has been cold calling stating that they are a council worker assessing the validity of installed 'lifelines' in consumers' homes.

Once in the home, the individual makes conversation regarding fake money in circulation. Consumers have then given money to the individual for them to check if they are counterfeit. The individual then makes an excuse to leave the room and leaves with the money.

Always check identification, confirm with the company the reason for any visit and if you are in doubt, do not open the door.

To report any concerns or for free advice and guidance, please call 0808 223 1133.
