Trading Standard Alerts

Please see below, the latest scam alerts from Warwickshire Trading Standards:

15/11/2017 Hard sell alarm sellers warning
Some Warwickshire residents have reported receiving cold calls from alarm/security companies who are seeking to sell their products by frightening the people they phone with bogus crime statistics and false claims.

These callers will often state that their alarm systems are free or cost only a few hundred pounds. However, once in a consumer’s home, high pressure sales techniques are employed with a view to bully and scare householders in to paying thousands for overpriced and unnecessary alarm systems, some that have long and very costly monitoring contracts.

NEVER invite cold callers to your home. You can’t tell a good trader from a bad one either on the phone or on the doorstep.
15/11/2017 Bogus ‘Telephone Preference Service’ cold callers
Warwickshire residents have reported receiving cold calls from fraudsters claiming to be calling from the Telephone Preference Service. The bogus callers claim that they are improving their call blocking service before asking for debit card details.

In some cases the callers appeared to know certain details about the householder already including what broadband provider they use and their debit card’s long number. These details may have been obtained following large scale data losses suffered by utility/broadband providers.

The Telephone Preference Service is a free service. TPS will never phone you requesting payment or credit/debit card details. Once registered there is no need to update your registration.

Following the data losses over the last few years reported by large companies, some credit or debit card details may have fallen in to the hands of fraudsters. They may know names, addresses and even some card details, for example the long number on the front of your card, but may not know the card expiry date or security number on the back of the card for example. It is this additional information that is often needed to commit ‘card not present’ fraud and it is what the fraudster is phoning you to try and obtain. NEVER give out any banking or card details to cold callers, even if they appear to be genuine and know some of your card details already!

Make a scam/rogue trader complaint to Trading Standards via Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 040506.
