scam Warning: Loft insulation phone calls
Halton Trading Standards have been made aware of residents receiving unsolicited telephone calls regarding loft insulation. The callers state how they are concerned that the consumer may have loft insulation that is unsafe and which is also being phased out by government. These telephone calls often develop into the trader wanting to inspect/survey the consumer’s property, often for free!  
Halton Trading Standards believe this is a scam. Residents should be cautious of unsolicited telephone calls requesting visits to their properties.
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.
If you need advice on anything else please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline  or 0808 223 1133
