Trading Standards Scam Awareness

I work for Trading Standards, covering the Somerset County Council area as well as Devon and Torbay.  Part of our work is to communicate to the public about scams and doorstep crime; these can particularly affect vulnerable people.  The following are a series of articles published by Trading Standards last year, which you may find useful.
