Within hours of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, announcing the Green Grant available for homeowners, there were reports of scam telephone calls from bogus companies advising that the recipient is eligible for the grant.
If you receive such a call, HANG UP. Do not give the caller any personal details.
The scheme is not due to start until September, and so any calls related to the Government announcement will be be a scam. The rollout of the scheme will be run locally and details of how to apply will be provided.
Please report all scams to Suffolk Trading Standards via 0808 223 1133.
