Cambridgeshire Police reminder: “Fraudsters may use the fact more people are staying at home as an opportunity to operate doorstep scams. Remember, someone posing as a good Samaritan and offering to help those in isolation with things like buying shopping, then keeping the money, is committing theft. This should be reported to local police by calling 101 or in the event of an emergency, call 999.”

SCAMS

In the first instance scams should be reported to Action Fraud, you can do so via their website: actionfraud.police.uk or by phone on 0300 123 2040.  Action Fraud is the national reporting centre for fraud and cyber-crime.

Scams can also be reported to Citizens Advice Consumer Service (CACS) who act as the national reporting line for all Trading Standards related concerns. The staff at CACS are highly trained advisers and share intelligence with Trading Standards.  The benefit of reporting to CACS is that the information is added to a national database, searchable by each Trading Standards Authority in the country.  They can be contacted by phone on 0808 223 1133 or via an online form here .
