Warwickshire residents are warned to beware of cold calls from people offering ‘call prevention services’.
These callers claim to be able to offer you protection against, ironically, cold calls, for a small monthly fee. In reality, if they do anything at all, the simply register your details with the Telephone Preference Service, a free to register service.
Would you give your bank details to a stranger in the street? No?
Then NEVER give your bank details to cold callers.
NEVER buy goods or services from cold callers.
ALWAYS put the phone down.
