Information has been received from a Poulton le Fylde resident who received a telephone call offering to sell a personal alarm that could be worn using a neck cord, claiming that the service was run by a doctor. These calls appear to target the over 60s, and attempt to obtain a large amount of personal information from the consumer, but do not want to provide information about the company when challenged. The caller used a 07733 mobile number that appears to be linked to online scams.
Always use known, established traders for such services.
