The long weekend is time a lot of us spend with family in Norfolk.

But would you be able to spot if they might be the victim of a scam?

Trading standards are asking us to to take the time to make sure they're not being targetted by criminals.

 

 

The warning signs.

Do they:

  • Receive a lot of junk mail?
  • Have a house full of cheap-looking goods such as jewellery and health products?
  • Receive frequent calls from strangers?
  •  Become secretive when discussing finances with family or friends?

What to do

Ask them if they have received any unusual mail or phone calls. Try to do it in a way that doesn’t cause unnecessary alarm.

If you have any concerns call Trading Standards via Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 040506.
