Telephone Preference Service Scam

Alert message sent 13/04/2019 19:10:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police


Dear Members

Leicestershire Trading Standards have received a report that local residents are being telephoned by an organisation claiming that their registration on the Telephone Preference Service needs to be renewed and asking for payment details. The Telephone Preference Service is a free service and is the official central register on which residents can record they do not wish to receive unsolicited sales or marketing calls. To register with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) residents can call the registration line on 0345 070 0707 or visit www.tpsonline.org.uk. Alternatively, they can also register by writing to Telephone Preference Service, DMA House, 70 Margaret Street, London, W1W 8SS.

Trading Standards remind residents not to give out any personal or financial information over the phone even if they are told this is to prevent then becoming a victim of scam or receiving unwanted calls.

What to do if you get scammed?
You can make an online report via Action Fraud by visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk. You can also report to them via telephone on 0300 123 2040.

Stay Safe
