TELEPHONE PREFERENCE SERVICE SCAM Our Trading Standards Service is advising that Island residents are receiving nuisance telephone calls – 4-5 in quick succession - from various ‘pretend’ sources offering services. This is closely followed by someone purporting to be from the Telephone Preference Service asking for card details to stop the calls!! This is a scam. The Telephone Preference Service would never contact anyone asking for details concerning bank cards etc. Be cautious if you receive these calls and do not under any circumstances give any card details or personal details to the caller.
