Scams Reports Print
Monday, 28 July 2014 08:09

Wrexham Trading Standards receive numerous reports  on a daily basis of people who have been the target of a scam. The reports are in  many forms – a telephone call to say that you have received a grant for some free new windows, an email saying you need to contact your bank immediately, or a letter saying that you have won a prize, or a text saying you are due compensation.

In the latest scam you receive a missed call from a local number – or so it appears- however on closer inspection the number is an international number. When you try and call the number back you will be charged to return the call.
