Residents will be able to find out how to protect themselves from scammers at an information stand which is touring Cambridgeshire’s libraries.
Cambridgeshire County Council is giving out advice on how to avoid scams and rogue traders.
Information and advice will be available on the static stand and residents will also be able to pick up a free ‘We’re not buying it’ sticker to display at their home to deter rogue traders.
Acting Head of Supporting Businesses and Communities, Aileen Andrews said “It’s really important to us to keep reminding residents about how to stay safe from scams or rogue traders.
“We took part in Scam Awareness Month during the summer and we’re continuing to spread these important messages. “If you’re popping along to one of the libraries we’re visiting, make sure you take a moment to read the information available – we all know an elderly or vulnerable person and it could give you advice on how to help them.”
The stand is currently at Chatteris library until Monday next week (October 26).
Other libraries to host the stand will be:
- Ely - October 26, to November 2
- Huntingdon - November 2 to 9
- St Neots - November 9 to 16
- St Ives- November 16 to 23
- March - November 23 to 30
- Wisbech - November 30 to December 7
- Whittlesey - December 7 to 14.
