We are receiving reports of a man calling up local residents claiming to be from Wiltshire Council looking to conduct a survey about an accident the person on the phone has had.
Anything of this nature should be treated with suspicion as we would never cold call anyone by telephone or at someone’s door. We will also never request bank details, passwords or pin numbers over the phone.
These types of calls should be reported to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or via their website online reporting system at www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud.
More information and guidance can also be found on our trading standards pages. (www.wiltshire.gov.uk/tradingstandards)
