SCAMS – beware

It seems it is the time of year when there are a lot of scams being reported. I know FOCUS readers are well informed and do not press “one” on their phone when instructed or give any bank details over the phone, but please see details below of current scams.

  1. SCAM: CALLERS MAKING OUT THEY ARE CALLING ABOUT GREENHOME GRANT SCHEMES

    Cold callers are random calling phone numbers trying to get owners to apply for GreenHome Grant Schemes funded by the government. They are harrassment calls, as they are trying to hurry you up on the phone for appointments to send a surveyor to the home the next day and try to get owners to join the scheme by the next day without allowing owners time to think about the scheme. This appears to be a SCAM call and not genuine.
