Consumer advice and scams

Our Trading Standards Team has received reports of a scam in the form of a call from someone falsely claiming to be from a health service.
During the call, scammers ask people if they have had a health problem and then go on to ask for their address and when their family visit them. They then say that they will get a colleague to go out and see them at their address.
Unfortunately it’s not always easy to spot a scam, but if you think you’ve received a suspicious phone call, you should:
- Hang up
- Call the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0808 2231133 to report the call and get advice
