Scams operate by post, online and on the telephone!

Scams currently doing the rounds include:

• Calls from the ‘Windows Service Centre’ offering help to ‘fix’ a non-existent computer problem.
• Offers of investment schemes aimed at older people.
• Cold callers offering a ‘free call blocker’.

NEVER PAY MONEY UPFRONT FOR ANY GOODS OR SERVICES UNLESS YOU ARE SURE THAT YOU ARE DEALING WITH A REPUTABLE SUPPLIER!
