Watch out for Coronavirus scams!

Surrey’s Trading Standards is reporting numerous different coronavirus scams, including miracle cures for the virus and home testing kits, which don’t exist. Also in circulation are fraudulent text messages or emails that claim to fine residents for going out, or offer refunds on taxes or business rates. Residents are reminded never to invite strangers into their homes, pay upfront for services or offers of shopping, nor give out bank details. Trading Standards advises: don’t be rushed into making a decision; be sceptical; don’t be afraid to hang up, bin it, delete it or shut the door. For more advice visit the ‘stay connected’ page at surreycc.gov.uk/coronavirus or to report a scam call 01296 388788.
