The video was from Monday’s ‘Scams and Fraud Awareness session’. If you do have anything to share and pass on, or even report then please do get in touch with us, on our mobile’s or by calling the office and leaving us a message, we will get back to you: 0113 243 0298 – or contact the police on 999 if a bogus caller or rogue trader is at your door, or afterwards on 101, or for scams they can be reported to Action Fraud on: 0300 123 2040. We do have leaflets we can send to you with useful information and contact numbers.
I do have one additional note from someone who wished to share:
“It arrived via e Mail, It was from the home office,official looking logo, pointing out I had crossed into a paying zone whilst driving my car, £23,24 due now with links to pay and of course the threat of £80+ if i delay by more than 7 days and court action etc, quite a decent attempt ,I’ve seen a few this was the best , thought you should be aware”
Note: The Home Office will not send you an email for crossing a paying zone, you will usually get a letter in the post – if you are unsure call us or the council on the number you source, not the one from the email itself.

Thank you Catherine, it was a pleasure to see you again and we look forward to seeing you again soon, warm wishes Lisa Argyle, Caring Together
