Cardiff Trading Standards warn of telephone survey scam
Cardiff Trading Standards is warning residents to be vigilant against unsolicited telephone calls from companies claiming they are carrying out a survey on either Medical Conditions or Crime Prevention around the Home.
Cardiff Residents have received calls from companies asking for details and then making arrangements to visit with a view to selling mobility products, like stairlifts and also security systems.
However, in some instances there may be discrepancies between what they say on the phone and their reasons for visiting people in their homes, and this may turn into a visit costing the resident thousands of pounds they didn't intend to spend.
If such a call is received, residents should:
* Record the date, time and name of the person calling
* Ask for details of the company calling including the name, address and contact details of the business
* Never give personal information over the phone
* Make notes of the conversation in case there are any inaccuracies in what is promised or agreed
* Make arrangements for family or friend to be with them at the time of any visit.
* Refuse to sign a contract during a visit, take your time and think about whether it is something you need
* Reduce the number of unwanted telephone calls, register with the Telephone Preference Service on 0845 070 0707 or at www.tpsonline.org.uk
* Obtain further information on how to deal with unwanted doorstep callers from www.doorstepcallers.co.uk.
Councillor Judith Woodman, Cardiff Council Deputy Leader for Communities, Housing and Social Justice said: "We take the issue of unsolicited calls very seriously in Cardiff. If you receive a phone call of this nature, be on your guard and never give out any personal details to the caller. If you suspect that the call is suspicious or may be a scam contact Consumer Direct Wales on 08454 04 05 06."
