Suffolk Trading Standards urge people to beware after numerous reports in East Suffolk.
“We have received reports of individuals calling at doors in ... East Suffolk offering doorstep Covid-19 testing. They may still be in the area, or could have moved on elsewhere in the county. These fraudsters are taking advantage of the pandemic, to extort money, or to gain access to your home.”
They urge homeowners:
❌ Do not let them in;
❌ Do not pay for a testing kit;
❌ Do not provide them with any personal details.
You can report any cold callers to Trading Standards via ☏ 0808 223 1133.
Without causing unnecessary alarm, please pass this on to anyone you feel might be at risk of such an approach.
