This is a well-known scam , but it's doing the rounds again. You receive phone call saying the caller is from or linked to the emergency services. There's a variant on buying an advertising space in a magazine issued to all members of these services.( Called The Blue Light/Lamp or something similar.) Or you're told any space you buy will be to benefit children's and/or cancer charities. Don't be taken in by pleasant plausible chat. We've had 5 phone calls in as many days, with the same spiel just different names
won't go into too many details because Police and trading standards are involved but don't get into conversation with these callers, just say you don't respond to cold callers. They get your details from business directories and think because you're a new business, you'll be tempted to advertise in a widely issued publication of that nature. DON'T !!!
