Scam Alert – Calls about face masks

posted in: News, Scams | 0

Trading Standards have just informed us of a scam related to face masks.

Be Scam Alert

In the latest scam, people receive calls informing them that wearing a mask while outdoors is obligatory, with the endgame being selling overpriced masks to the unaware.

There are two versions of the call – one involving a recorded message and the other with a live person.

Both calls mislead by claiming that mask-wearing is necessary. The live-caller, quoting a price of £29 for two masks, two hand gels and gloves, requests an address and payment information.

Please hang up, block or delete.

This is a scam.
