Trading Standards Scams Alert

Royal Greenwich Trading Standards have been made aware of a scam phone call from someone claiming to be from “Greenwich Planning Department”.

The scammers tell the victim that they are doing a survey, and very quickly start asking for personal details.

“Greenwich Planning Department” would NEVER get a survey from residents in this manner.

The phone call is a scam and the scammer wants your personal details so they can ultimately take money from you.

If you receive a call like this, hang up immediately and report the incident. If you have been a victim of a scam please report it to Action Fraud using the details below
