Warning about loft insulation scam organisations impersonating local government

Warning about loft insulation scam organisations impersonating local government

A resident has alerted CAPASP to a phone call she received from a man purporting to be an "insulation clerk" from "Cambridgeshire County Council".

The man advised that the lady's house had an insulation grant in 1985 and was offering a free survey of the loft the next day to check for mold etc as the insulation used "has fibre glass and is now below quality", saying that a further free grant was available to upgrade the insulation if needed. The house was only built in 1992. More »

Upon further enquiries, it became apparent that the caller was ringing from the Bournemouth area and a Google search of the number (01202 942344) shows a negative rating. All indications point to this being an insulation scam with the fraudsters impersonating a local government agency to try to gain confidence and trust, especially in these times of economic uncertainty and rising energy costs. Thank you to the resident who brought this to attention.

If you'd like to better insulate your home with all the many benefits that brings for the planet, your comfort, quality of life and costs, then always use a reputable tradesperson, never a cold caller who contacts you out of the blue. CAPASP partner Safe Local Trades | Find recommended and approved traders in Peterborough and surrounding areas would be a great place to start if you are in the north of the county, or try the Trading Standards approved Buy With Confidence – Trading Standards Approved

Police reminding people to #CallWhenItcounts

Cambridgeshire Constabulary call handlers can receive as many as 1,900 calls in just one day.

Many of those calls are reports that could have been resolved using online services. This is why the force are encouraging people to only #CallWhenItCounts, which will reserve call handlers' time on the line for the most serious emergencies.

There are plenty of ways to get in touch with police that do not involve calling. Next time you're about to dial 101, please stop and think: could this issue be submitted using an online report, live web chat or my local council? More »

Together with Cambridgeshire Constabulary's online services, we can ease the pressure on our call handlers. To launch a live web chat, visit www.cambs.police.uk and click the green 'chat' icon. To submit a report, visit www.cambs.police.uk/report » Less
