It seems that no good idea goes un-scammed!
We’ve had reports of elderly people being called up by someone claiming to be from the Telephone Preference Service (that opts you out of nuisance calls – or would do if the callers observed it).
The caller says that there’s an £84 fee to renew TPS membership and pressures the person to pay up.
This is of course complete nonsense – the TPS is free.
Please warn elderly friends and relatives to be on the look-out. If someone calls you asking for money to renew TPS listing, hang up and report it to the Police.2 Comments
