Scam Alert

Posted Friday 13 Oct 2017 11:46 AM

Kent Trading Standards warn residents about criminals pretending to be Trading Standards officers to defraud vulnerable victims out of hundreds of thousands of pounds.

How it works
• The criminal visits or calls residents who have previously been victims of crime claiming to be a Trading Standards officer using false identification.
• They tell the resident that following a Trading Standards investigation into their previous complaint they are entitled to compensation.
• They tell the resident they need to pay some money to release the compensation awarded by the Court.
• Some residents are being told they must also pay the VAT that wasn’t paid from the original crime
What to do
• Tell the caller you need to speak to a friend or relative and hang up.
• If they are at your door politely say you need to speak to a friend or relative and close the door.
REMEMBER: Trading Standards will NEVER ask for cash and you would NEVER be asked to pay money to receive compensation.

WARNING: Telephone callers may insist you hang up and check their ID by calling a number they give to you. This is part of the fraud. Criminals stay on the line and pretend to be Trading Standards to verify the caller. Report these calls to Kent Police at your local Police station.

Residents that have previously been victims of doorstep crime are particularly at risk so please warn neighbours, friends and/or relatives if you think they may be targeted.

Door To Door Sales

Posted Tuesday 18 Jul 2017 13:52 PM

The following information has been received from Sandgate Parish Council and explains the recent experience of visiting door to door salesman.
A “door to door salesman” called at our house in ****** yesterday afternoon with a large rucksack and flimsy (easily replicated) laminated ID card, claiming to be an ex-offender (In his words “Not a murderer, just a bit of a bad boy”) and participating in a scheme of door to door selling as part of his release plan.
When my wife said she supported what he was trying to do, but had just been shopping so needed nothing, he became much more aggressive in manners and stormed off.
I seem to remember an article in the Parish News emails last year warning of someone of a very similar “MO” and it might be worth updating that article and re-sending?
My wife didn't think anything of it at the time and I think the time to report this incident to the Police has probably gone.
I find it hard to believe that there is any recognised scheme for ex-offenders doing door-to-door calls and if that is the case it may be worth also highlighting that in any emails?
Thanks for the Parish News Service, I dare say you get little positive feedback but it is a useful and informative item in our inboxes.
