Fraudsters posing as Bailiffs

Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service are asking people to stay vigilant against fraudsters posing as enforcement officers and bailiffs. HMCTS has become aware of scammers phoning members of the public, posing as County Court bailiffs, High Court Enforcement Officers and Certificated Enforcement Agents. During the calls, the fraudsters claim that the person owes money, and demands that they transfer funds into a bank account.
Whilst the court service may contact you by phone to discuss a warrant of control and may take debit or credit card payments,they will never telephone you to ask for your bank details or to ask you to make a bank transfer using your sort code and account number

Scam Amazon calls

Reports are still being received of scam Amazon calls. In one variation, the caller claims the householder's Amazon account has been renewed. The call is made using a recorded voice, victims are advised to press 1 if they have not requested to renew but want a refund. The scammer then tries to obtain personal and financial details.

Maintenance for solar panels

Lancashire residents are warned to avoid expensive maintenance contracts on previously installed solar panels, after a report that a retired lady with memory difficulties paid £20,000 for one of these cold-called contracts. Some traders in this field use persistent phone calls and red-print warning letters about overdue safety inspections to push consumers into getting possibly unnecessary and often overpriced work done. Consumers are advised to use MCS (Microgeneration Certification
Scheme) certified installers for any environmental power generation installations such as solar, wind, biomass, ground or heat pumps.

Beware cold calling at Park Homes

Park home owners in Lancashire are advised to beware doorstep sellers offering underfloor insulation. Concerns were raised when one resident had realised after paying in the region of £4000 that the work had not been carried out.
