Bogus Officers

Hampshire Trading Standards Service would like to alert the public to a spate of incidents where a cold caller to their home falsely states they are a Trading Standards Officer. Under this guise, the bogus caller attempts to defraud the householder by claiming that they are due money in connection with previous work that has been done on their property. In some cases thermal wall coatings have been mentioned.

The home-owner is told that they will have to pay court costs or other admin fees which will be refunded at a later date.

Residents taken in by these false claims have lost several thousand pounds.

Trading Standards Officers, the Police and other officials do not ask for money. If you are suspicious of a cold caller please dial 101 or in an emergency 999.
