Know Your Rights! …. Advice from Trading Standards

Don’t fall foul of a scam

It is estimated that scams cost UK consumers £1 billion per year.  Scams take many forms, frequently masquerading as lotteries, prize draws and sweepstakes.  They often involve sending money or phoning a premium rate 090 number to claim a prize…which doesn’t exist.  Some schemes, often originating from Nigeria, ask for details of a person’s bank account in order to permit the transfer of money and the perpetrators use the information to empty the victim’s account.

Remember, if it sound too good to be true then it probably is – don’t be caught out – put it in the bin!  Trading Standards wants to know if you have received something which you think is a scam.  You can send us information free of charge at:
