The Latest Scam Alerts

Dear Resident,


Energy grant scams

Trading Standards has warned of cold callers and doorstep scammers posing as representatives of energy companies.

The cold callers tell you that you're eligible to receive funding or grants for boilers, insulation or heating systems.

If you receive a spam call on your iPhone, you can report it to your provider by texting the word ‘call’ followed by the phone number to 7726.

On Android, text the word ‘call’ to 7726. You’ll then receive a message asking you for the scam number.



Evri impersonation scam text

A scam text impersonating Evri 

A phishing scam text impersonates Evri and tells you that due to 'damage to the outer package,' your 'address information is lost' and therefore your parcel 'can not be delivered.'

This is the latest delivery attempt scam created by fraudsters to trick you into entering your details into a dodgy site.

Scam texts can be reported by forwarding them to 7726 and malicious websites to the National Cyber Security Centre.


If you have been a victim of a scam, then report it to Action Fraud or by calling 03001232040.
