Trading Standards is calling on local people to expose scams and help stop more people from falling prey to clever cons that fleece them of thousands of pounds.

Scams Awareness Month runs throughout July and this year’s campaign "Don't be Rushed, Don't be Hushed" aims to highlight how scams continue to flourish when people stay silent.

The national campaign will be supported locally by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment’s Trading Standards Service.

The campaign is asking people to keep two things in mind whenever they receive an unsolicited approach or when looking for goods or services: don’t be rushed and don’t be hushed. People should take their time making a decision and be sure of their facts before parting with money or personal information, and speak out when they think they’ve spotted a scam.

Jonathan Bell said: “The theme of this year’s BHA Summit is ‘Together We Are Stronger’ and that I believe that is certainly the case as far as the VAT issue is concerned.
