Somerset Police Potential Scam Calls, (Be Aware)

Trading Standards have told us that some residents have been receiving phone calls from a company that are offering “virus ventilation and sanitation due to lockdown” on behalf of Bath & North East Somerset Council. The Council wishes it be known that the company, Pro Day UK, do not represent them so any calls from them should be considered as a scam.

Although this offence happened in the Bath area, similar attempts have been made in other parts of the country, so they may well start to try other regions of the Avon and Somerset police area including ours.

If you have any information regarding these incidents contact the Police on 101. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111

Quick Scam Reporting

New. A quick and easy way to report scam emails

The National Cyber Security Centre (part of GCHQ – the Government’s cyber and security agency) has launched a suspicious email reporting service to take phishing scams down – all you have to do is forward suspicious emails to its report@phishing.gov.uk email address.

Once you’ve reported a suspicious email, the NCSC will analyse it and any websites it links to. If it believes it’s malicious, NCSC may:

  • Seek to block the address the email came from, so it can no longer send emails.
  • Work with hosting companies to remove links to malicious websites.
  • Raise awareness of commonly reported suspicious emails and methods used.

While the NCSC is unable to inform you of the outcome of its review, it has assured us that it acts upon every message received – as an example, within the first week, the new service received over 25,000 reports and, as a direct result, it has already removed over 400 phishing campaigns.
