Scam Alert from Royal Borough Greenwich Trading Standards

Please be aware that if you receive a telephone call from mobile number 07405 489347 and they purport to be a Police Officer or Trading Standards Officer calling regarding recent works carried out at your property this is a SCAM.

The Police and Trading Standards always advise businesses or residents to check IDs of callers. If they do not have ID or you are suspicious of an ID they show you, ask them to wait whilst you verify their credentials.

You can then check if they are a genuine Royal Greenwich member of staff by telephoning the Royal Greenwich Council main switchboard number on 020 8854 8888 and ask to be put through to the department they are claiming they are from. For the Police, Call 101 the non-emergency number to report.
