There are many scam sellers right now making money out of Covid – 19 – such awful people. Below is some information received from local Trading Standards who are doing their best to shut these scam sellers down:
We have recently been made aware of a scam call doing the rounds and want to raise awareness.
Residents receive a call with an automated voice saying “All citizens must wear a face mask, press 1 to order”. The call apparently sounds very convincing, stating that the government has instructed them to wear a facemask and to use the buttons on their phone to make a purchase.
If anyone has received a call, they should report it to the Citizens Advice Consumer Service – https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/consumer/get-more-help/if-you-need-more-help-about-a-consumer-issue/ telephone 08082231133.
