Halton Borough Trading Standards officers are reminding residents how to get help during the Coronavirus lockdown and how to avoid scams, with a ‘one-stop shop’ guide.

They have set up a page with information on:
• How to get help
•How to avoid being scammed
•Covid-19 scams that we are already aware of
•Advice on looking after your mental well-being
•National and local advice and support organisations.


Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Trading Standards, Cllr Dave Cargill, said: “If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.”

If you need advice on anything else please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline or 0808 223 1133
