Business Scam alert-cold callers offering listings
Scam Alert – Telephone cold callers offering advertising including ‘online listings’ – April 2019
We are warning businesses about telephone cold callers claiming to be offering advertising including ‘online listings’.
This approach is a typical scam targeted at businesses and often, following the call, a demand for payment for the proposed advertising will arrive even if no agreement has been made during the call.
We would remind all businesses to ensure that all employees dealing with telephone contacts are aware of this type of cold calling scam.
If you or anyone within your business receives one of these calls, do not give or confirm any information about your business. Hang up and report it to us via our partners the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06.
