Suspicious Call

Alert message sent 14/05/2020 16:38:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Good afternoon,

I'd like to make you aware of the following:

A resident in Plastow Green near Ashford Hill has received a phone call from a local landline number (01635 800360) regarding loft insulation they had installed under the government scheme. They started to pry for information before ending the call which made them think it was a fraudulent call. No personal details were handed over and no money lost. 

Hampshire County Council, Trading Standards and the Police advise residents not to agree to work that is instigated as a result of a cold call or via a leaflet drop. Residents should obtain at least 3 written quotes from reputable businesses or traders who are either members of the Hampshire County Council Trading Standards Buy With Confidence Scheme or a recognised trade association.

Please consider using blocking methods via your phone provider if you are subject to these types of calls.
