Beware - possible scam

News : 29 November 2019

We have been alerted to a possible scam operating in the Wealden area.

Scam alert

A man is alleged to be phoning residents and falsely claiming to be working on behalf of the 'Conservation Officer at Wealden District Council'. 

A resident raised the alarm with the Council when the man said he was coming to inspect and fill a loft cavity, and that there may be money to pay. 

If you receive a call like this from someone claiming to be from or working on behalf of the Council, end the call & contact us on 01323 443322 to double check the legitimacy of the enquiry. Never give your personal details to someone over the phone unless you can be sure of their identity.
