Today’s Scam Beware….

While visiting my local Post Office while off duty, I overheard a  lady reporting a scam. The Postal worker assured the Lady all was well, and the Lady left.
Later that day my own Father received exactly the same Scam on his phone.
Basically, a message is sent out claiming to be from the Post Office. It claims that the individual owes the Post Office  £2.99 for a outstanding delivery charge.  It then asks you to log onto a web site to settle the matter. Empty Bank account soon follows.
Do not reply to this scam. Just delete.

The very same day, a bogus trades man called at my Fathers, but I answered the door. He believed that he had been sent to my Fathers address to fix the roof. Needless to say he left quickly when I started to ask questions.
Unfortunately, I did not see any vehicle he was using, so was unable to make a satisfactory report to Norfolk Police.

Scammers and bogus tradesmen are out there. Please always be vigilant.
And please report any cold callers, and bogus tradesmen. Never give them employment.
