Warning over bogus council official scam

Devon Trading Standards are warning local residents about a bogus phone caller claiming to be from the local authority.

There have been several reports of a caller saying they're a county council officer and talking about claiming compensation after a recent accident.

The bogus officer then tries to obtain personal and financial information.

Anyone receiving one of these calls should hang up and then report it to Trading Standards.
