Mole Valley Beat Bulletin Thursday 12th May 2022


 

Cold callers in Westcott going door to door Weds evening 11th May collecting for a charity.  Whether its genuine or not Take Five  and don't get hooked in - 

Doorstep fraud: Fraudsters try to scam you after knocking on your door. They might be pretending to collect money for charity or offering to sell you overpriced or substandard products or services, such as home improvements. In the case of rogue traders, they will call uninvited and offer to do some work on your roof, driveway or garden. 

We know that victims of scams often report that in hindsight they felt something wasn’t quite right at the time. We are raising awareness of the tactics scammers use, and encouraging you to ‘stop and think’ if something doesn’t FEEL, SEEM, LOOK or SOUND right, allowing time to trust your gut instinct and help prevent you from becoming a scam victim.
