I’ve just been talking to one of our RBWM Trading Standards Officer’s about this neat bit of kit.
If you or your neighbour, relative or friend would like to feel more comfortable when answering your home phone then take a look at www.truecall.org.uk
Protect yourself, and older or vulnerable relatives, friends, or neighbours, from scam and nuisance calls by getting a call blocker.
These devices stop calls from unknown numbers coming through to a landline, but still allow friends and family to call as normal.
Our trading standards team has several call blockers available which it can supply and install for free.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are concerned about a relative or friend in another borough, town or city then our team will happily forward your concerns to the right authority.
More information about scams can be found on the Friends Against Scams website.
