Important notice. Our trading standards team is warning that scammers are calling Angus householders claiming to be their broadband provider and advising that either their internet/phone line will be cut off unless a payment is made. This scammers try to gain access to your personal details and ultimately to your bank account.

What to do? The Trading standard team advice is:

Do not give your bank/card details to anyone. Just hang up and phone your provider from different phone. Scammers often stay on the line so you are better to use another phone.

If you would like to report a scam or to find out more about current scam warnings see Angus Council’s Scam Free Angus website.
