Scampaign 2012

The county-wide crackdown on rogue traders and cold callers was launched earlier this month to examine the huge range of scams that Suffolk people are continually exposed to.

For six months we will focus on a different issue, including telephone sales, E- crime and ticketing scams.

Along with trained and experienced Trading Standards officers, a new cohort of ‘Consumer Champions’ will be offering invaluable advice and guidance to help protect vulnerable members of the community.
