Trading Standards and Fire Service join forces for scam alert

Suffolk businesses and residents are urged to be alert to a scam in which bogus callers claim to be selling advertising space for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service.

SuffolkFRSThe warning from the fire service and trading standards comes after a Wickham Market business reported a man trying to sell them an advert.

The caller claimed to be an employee from ‘Suffolk Fire and Rescue’ and said that he could sell them some advertising space for £95 for the year.

When the business declined the caller became aggressive and then finally hung up.
