Telephone Scammers operating in 01394 code area

According to the latest blog post by the County Councillor of Ipswich Road Woodbridge, Caroline Page, people are being scammed on the phone.

She says,

Trading Standards I want everyone to make local residents aware of the ‘you must renew your washing machine (or some such appliance ) insurance’ scam that is doing the rounds by telephone. Recently an elderly Woodbridge resident was very nearly coerced into believing she should pay a significant sum of money by direct debit, because these heartless scoundrels insisted she had made a verbal agreement over the phone. The line is “they are renewing your insurance.” This is not the case.
