Scam Phone Call

A member of the community has received a phone call from a male advising them that there is a mandatory requirement to fit a gas alarm and if they do not they could be fined 5000. The caller has gone on to state they could fit the alarm for 150.

Please be aware of any contact whether by phone, text, email or in person where someone threatens imminent action.
No legitimate company or firm would cold call making such a threat.
Do not give personal details including banking details to any cold callers.
